Dating back to the establishment of College in 1592, Trinity College Library is the largest research library in Ireland, and one of the largest on Europe. It contains a bookstock of over 4.25 million volumes, 30,000 academic journals available online and in full text, significant holdings of maps and music, and an extensive collection of manuscripts, the most famous being the Book of Kells. In addition to the purchases and donations of almost four centuries, Trinity College Library enjoys the privilege of receiving all Irish and UK copyright material (over 100,000 new items each year) – a right it has enjoyed since 1801.

Further information on how the Library operates, as well as the various training sessions it offers can be found on the Library website.
