To mark the 6th of October - the Day of Digital Archives - today's post will celebrate all of the NIVAL website's digital content.
NIVAL was formally established in 1997 with the aim of documenting all aspects of 20th century and contemporary Irish art and design and providing public access to the collection to encourage and facilitate research.
After many years of NIVAL's digital databases and digitised collections existing in their own “silo” the task of migrating these and adding new collections - including the KDW collection - is almost complete. These collections are fully cross-searchable and the new system offers many search options and filters to aid your research.
Some areas of the site are still under construction but all of the digital collections are available onwww.nival.ie
Click on http://www.nival.ie/collections/collections-overview/ for the full list of NIVAL collections, including online collections, and the Artist, Gallery and Exhibitions databases. The Online Collections link http://www.nival.ie/collections/online-special-collections/ will bring you to the digital finding aids for eight of the special collections.
