Welcome to the blog of the Archives and Special Collections of University of Galway Library.
The Archives and Special Collections preserve and make accessible a range of materials which date from the 15th century to the present day. Collections are accessible on-site at the Archives and Special Collections Reading Room, located at the Hardiman Building, and also online through our Digitial Collections online repository.
As well as providing a service to students and staff of the University, Archives and Special Collections strengthen links between the University and the wider community through hosting and partnering in events such as exhibitions and public talks. By acquiring and preserving rare printed and archive material, the service supports scholarship, research, and discovery of our local, national, and international heritage and history.
This blog will give regular updates on the collections, new acquisitions, items of interest, newly digitised materials, as well as updates on access and upcoming special events.
