Digitising to Support Scholarship
The Digitisation Centre is committed to supporting research at NUI Galway. Past projects carried out by the Library in support of research include:
- the digitisation of the Dublin Penny Journal as part of the Texte project at the Moore Institute
- the digitisation of the Catholic Directory 1834-1878.
This latter was part of ‘The Correspondence of Paul Cullen (Irish Manuscripts Commission)’ project. The project recently received a major grant from the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
We work with academics and students from across the University to provide expertise, consultation, and technical assistance in the creation of digital projects.
