New National Library of Ireland catalogue

The National Library of Ireland has a new online catalogue, searchable at http://catalogue.nli.ie/.

From the site's introduction page:

This single discovery interface enables you to search across the Library's catalogued collections simultaneously - Printed Books including Official Publication, visual material including Prints & Drawings, Photographs, Ephemera, manuscripts catalogued since 1990 together with a growing body of digitised material including 33,000 images from the Lawrence, Independent H, Eason, Poole, Keogh, Clarke, Stereo Pairs and Tempest photographic collections.

Additional databases will be added on an ongoing basis in particular Sources and the Newspaper Database containing a listing of newspaper titles held in the National Library of Ireland, including information from the Newsplan Project.


The Advanced Search page at http://catalogue.nli.ie/Search/Advanced looks particularly useful!

Congrats to all involved...
