Archives and Special Collections 2017 report and Connaught Journal donation


Launch of The Archives and Special Collections in 2017 Report and Donation of Rare Issues of the Connaught Journal


Date: Tue 27 February, 1730
Venue: Bridge Room (#1001), Floor 1, Hardiman Research Building, followed by a reception in HRB Room 004


From the Michael M. O'Shaughnessy collection

2017 was an exciting year for the archives and special collections at NUI Galway. The collections featured in many publications by staff from this University and elsewhere and also featured in many exhibitions, seminars and in a range of teaching programmes. They stimulated connections with major institutions worldwide, brought distinguished visitors to the campus and attracted media coverage. Outreach activities, cataloguing and digital innovation all extended the local and global reach of the collections. Major new additions have further strengthened our holdings in areas such as the Irish language, the Northern Ireland Troubles, left-wing politics and local history.



All of these developments are captured in an annual report, The Archives and Special Collections in 2017. Professor Daniel Carey, Director of the Moore Institute and Chair of the Archives Strategy Committee, will launch the report. 

This event will also mark the generous donation of rare issues of the Connaught Journal newspaper by Ronnie O’Gorman. 

Speakers:
Marie Boran, Special Collections Librarian
Dr. Elizabeth Tilley,  English
Dr. John Cunningham, History

Hi there,
I'm wondering if it is possible to buy a copy of the "Archives and Special Collections Report 2017"?
