Digital Repository of Ireland


The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) skillfully works to preserve and share the data, objects, and narratives that contextualize Ireland's rich cultural heritage. Providing access to over 2,200 historical and contemporary items physically housed in collections across the country, the portal acts as a central hub, offering interactive multimedia tools and digital resources to archivists, researchers, educators, historians, and the interested public. Readers can find out more about the contributing institutions under Organisations, or browse/search the repository through the Discover section. Perhaps best of all, readers may opt to Visit the DRI Project Website to explore a sampling of current projects and online exhibits. For instance, just this January the DRI launched Inspiring Ireland 1916, a two-part project with an award-winning website that presents objects from Ireland's National Cultural Institutions alongside publicly collected memorabilia to commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising (via The Scout Report - Volume 22. Number 3).
