Library Talk - The Troubles Collection in Maynooth University Library

Thursday, October 27, 2022 - 10:00 to 10:30

This paper will look at Maynooth University Library's (MUL) unique collection of books, pamphlets and ephemera relating to the period commonly referred to as the Northern Ireland "troubles". It examines the obligations and challenges placed on MUL to contribute to the collective memory and heritage of a society by preserving with impartiality such authentic source material.

By acquiring and making this “troubles” material available MUL is continuing to transform its collections by ensuring a diversity of opinions are accessible to all who are interested in using our shared past to inform our future approach to this turbulent period of our history.
