Research Aids

KDW Photographic Archive

To get the most from your research time in NIVAL, you are advised to come as prepared as possible by consulting the online catalogues and collection indexes in advance of your visit.  Once on site, staff are always available to guide you through the collection and to assist in making best use of the materials available. 

The books and journals collection is searchable through the main NCAD catalogue at www.ncad.ie/ncadonlinelibrary/

Summary information from the Files Collection is available through the Artists, Galleries, and Exhibitions Database.

The development of finding aids to the Special Collections and archives is ongoing.  Finding aids provide descriptive information on specific records or archives and guide researchers through a collection, helping to determine the level of relevance of a particular collection to one's research.
