Digitised Archives at the Hardiman Library

The Hardiman Research Building - Home to Archives and Special Collections
The James Hardiman Library is committed to making material from its archival and printed collections available online.  Digitisation of these unique treasures of the Library's Archival and Special Collections material opens up access to these valuable resources and allows them to be used and enjoyed by all.

By using leading technologies and expertise, digitisation is providing a preserved record of old and fragile material, thus ensuring that these resources will survive and remain accessible for scholars for long into the future. Allied to this, the digitisation of material will allow unprecedented access to material by scholars not just here on campus at the Hardiman Library but to a national and international audience, creating a global network of students and scholars of all interests and disciplines.
