Fw: [nalil] Link - National Library of Ireland data-base
- This was sent to me, haven't tried it but it looks good Gordon
A National Library of Ireland data-base for Irish Research.
This allows anyone anywhere to search across 196,574 records, for Irish Manuscripts and periodical material covering subjects which range from Art, architecture and archaeology, through economics and genealogy to history, politics, literature and science and zoology.
To be able to access the data base online removes the need to travel to the Library or to a research institution which holds the published catalogues.
For the first time you are able to search both manuscripts and periodicals, one may find maps, estate papers, and business records, which initially would be of a great use for those preparing for a trip to Ireland to further their research.
What is wonderful is that an interactive map showing you where the location of all archives and libraries that have Irish material listed is held, with full contact details.
