The Archives collections of NUI Galway Library comprise over 350 collections including Literary Collections, Theatre, Film and Performing Arts Collections, Political and Historical Collections and Collections relating to the Irish language.  Explore our treasures by searching or browsing through the list of collections below, or cross-search across all our collections with the Archives Catalogue.

"Archives are cultural treasures - they are precious, they are tactile, they carry mystery, their discovery can be an exciting event. For a university, archives are also the bedrock of research, and a service to the whole community: through their responsible management of archives, libraries like the James Hardiman Library become custodians of our heritage."

Prof. Sean Ryder, Moore Institute
