Digital archives are bursting with collections relating to Dublin’s past and present. They trace the boundaries and geography of the city and the social, cultural, and business life of Dubliners through the centuries. Join the Digital Repository of Ireland for an interactive webinar that brings together the content creators of these exceptional collections as well as the historians, geographers, and curators of digitised records to showcase what Dublin city and county material is available online and in digital format.
The event will be chaired by Deputy City Librarian at Dublin City Libraries and Archives (DCLA), Brendan Teeling. Speakers include:
· Emma Clarke, Founder of Dublin Ghost Signs
· Karen De Lacey, County Archivist at Fingal County Council
· Joe Lee, Independent Film and Video Maker
· Dr James Louis Smith, Postdoctoral Fellow at University College Cork
