Digital Ephemera Archive

The Digital Ephemera Archive is a pilot project initiated in October 2009 to develop a digital archive to supplement the Library’s collection of hard copy documentation on all aspects of Irish art and design.

Information resources such as exhibition invitations, press releases, and brochures, produced in electronic format, are now being collected and stored as pdf's in our digital repository.  The Digital Ephemera is filed according to Artist, Gallery, Design or Subject Area, applying the same system of classification accorded all hard copy material.
