Ask an Archivist! - James Hardiman Library Archives Online Forum


What are Archives? What collections are held by the Hardiman Library? How can Archives benefit my research?

These are just a few of the questions you may have regarding the treasures of the archival holdings of the James Hardiman Library. On Tuesday 25th March, all are welcome and invited to a special online forum where you can live-chat with the staff of the Archives service of the James Hardiman Library.

Discover for yourself the archive collections which span over 500 years of local and national history across a wide and varied range of disciplines, from Galway history, landed estates, folklore, photographs, theatre including Druid Theatre and the Abbey Theatre, Northern Ireland conflict, society and politics, literature through the archive of John McGahern, digital archives such as the Éamon de Buitléar archive and much more.

You can find more information here and a link to a digitised guide to our archive collections here.
