Your Library, Your Views

Library Pop Art

We’re running a short survey to help us understand your experiences of the Library. As a thank you, we will enter you into a draw to win prizes including Trinity Ball tickets, TCard credit and more.

Your views will help us to better appreciate all of our users’ needs and provide valuable insights to enable us to develop responsive services for the future. The survey will take about fifteen minutes to complete. The closing date is 14 December.

Get started here!

The Library Life Pulse survey is being administered by an independent research agency called Alterline, you can view their GDPR policy online.

Early Irish Manuscripts Project Shortlisted for Major Award – Again!

Over the past few years the Early Irish Manuscripts Project has focused on the conservation, research and digitisation of four of the Library’s most important early medieval insular Gospel Books, funded by the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Art Conservation Project. This online exhibition gives a good short overview of the project.

We are delighted that the Bank of America, Merrill Lynch & Trinity College Dublin have been shortlisted AGAIN for the Allianz Business to Arts Award for Best Long Term Partnership and also the Judges’ Special Recognition Award for Portfolio of Investment. So keep those fingers crossed, we were robbed back in 2016.

The Awards will take place on September 4 at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. Wish us luck!
