A-Z list of online resources

by Dr Kirsten Mulrennan, Archivist

While we’re all working from home, we thought we’d share an alphabetical selection of online resources on archives and rare books which may be of use for further research. These include databases, online records or exhibitions which tie in with our collections’ themes. We have also included links to other Irish university special collections and archives services, as well as archives services in Munster.
