This student library subsection of the BDL lists both the extant and the virtual titles which Beckett is known or thought to have read during the years 1923-1931, first as a student at Trinity College Dublin, then as a lecturer at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris and TCD. The extant student library consists of the books dating from this timeframe that have been preserved in various collections, most importantly in Beckett's apartment in Paris. The virtual student library, by contrast, contains the books which, according to specific sources, Beckett read or may have read as a student and lecturer but which have not been preserved.
