Ask About Ireland and the Cultural Heritage Project is an initiative of public libraries together with local museums and archives in the digitisation and online publication of the original, the unusual and the unique material from their local studies' collections to create a national Internet resource for culture. The website currently includes Griffiths Evaluation, free E-Books and other resources.
The participating organisations have selected material of particular public
interest from their holdings within a variety of common topics ranging from
sport, transport and architecture to flora and fauna and Irish writers. The
material is then digitised (scanned, digitally photographed, recorded etc.) and
set in a narrative context.
Ask About Ireland is a constantly growing resource with content being added to
the website on an ongoing basis. While there is lots of material on this site of
interest to all, this is just a sample of what is available in public libraries
throughout the country.
