Cultural heritage repositories at UCD hold unique resources that reflect the heritage and history of Ireland. UCD Digital Library provides access to resources from many UCD cultural repositories, including: UCD Library Special Collections; UCD Archives; the National Folklore Collection UCD; the UCD Irish Dialect Archive; map collections in the Schools of UCD School of Geological Sciences and Geography, Planning & Environmental Policy; the UCD School of Art History and Cultural Policy; the UCD Classical Museum; and more.
Many collections in the Digital Library are also published to Europeana, the digital online gateway to European cultural heritage collections.
A new approach to digital images has been introduced to enhance users' experience and to support scholarly research and innovation.
Support for the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) has been upgraded and expanded, making tens of thousands of high-resolution deep-zoomable images in the UCD Digital Library useable in new ways. This includes support for the innovative Mirador image viewer, now selectable as the default image viewer from the Options tool in the Digital Library page header.
Try out Mirador and experience the benefits of the IIIF approach to disseminating images at our demo page.
