Launch of the Digital Library

Monday, October 23, 2023 - 13:00

MU Library has been engaged in a project to develop a Digital Library in order to provide online access to some of wonderful collections of Maynooth University and St Patrick’s Pontifical University.

We are delighted to launch the Digital Library during Research Week 2023 on Monday 23rd October 2023 from 1-2pm. Join us for a light lunch in Training room E, MU Library and hear about the importance of access to online collections for research and to view the Digital Library itself.

These are the collections/part-collections we plan to have available in the Digital Library on launch day:

Bloomfield Maps (Loughton and Redwood estates)

Kerry Letters

John Sadleir Archive

L’Essais de Michel de Montaigne (Sub collection curated by John O’Brien)

Kilcock Land Leases

Ua Maoileoin Collection

A True History (Translated from the Greek)

Salamanca (Small selection)

Of course, it will be grown over time in collaboration with our campus partners and, we hope, will become a valuable research tool and gateway for anyone interested in our rich and unique special collections.
