UCD Centre for the History of the Media


All members of the Centre are actively engaged in research projects, a sense of which can be obtained by browsing through the various profiles.

In addition, the Centre is host to Iberian Books, a major initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.


The Iberian Book Project intends to produce a complete survey of all books published in Spain, Portugal and colonial America before 1700. The first stage of this initiative, covering the period before 1601, was published by Brill in May 2010. The second phase, which extends coverage up to the middle of the seventeenth century, will be published in two volumes by Brill in 2015. The third phase will be complete in 2017 or 2018. The first two phases are also available online as a free resource published by the UCD Digital Library Group.

More information on the Iberian Book Project can be found on its dedicated website.
