Old Library Redevelopment and Research Study Centre

Trinity’s Old Library is the custodian of rare and important works, including the Book of Kells recognised by UNESCO as a Memory of the World, that have inspired generations of students, academics and visitors. Our magnificent Long Room is renowned throughout the world and attracts over one million visitors every year.

Inspiring Generations will enable a critically important three-part redevelopment plan that draws upon the best 21st-century design and technology to safeguard the Old Library structure and conserve the precious collections for future generations. The plan includes urgent structural and environmental upgrades; redeveloping the facilities to put them on a par with the best library and museum experiences around the world; and digitising the priority collections to conserve them and make them accessible online.
