A short demonstration video of the Ask about Ireland website

AskAboutIreland 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 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 and set in a narrative context. AskAboutIreland is managed by LGMA Libraries Development, supported by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government with funding from the Information Society Fund.
