UCD Archives uses Google Arts and Culture to create online exhibitions exploring our collections. These exhibitions are curated by our archivists, and with our colleagues in UCD Special Collections, UCD Digital Library and the National Folklore Collection, to create exhibitions on topics where we have shared holdings or where we have collaborated on a project together. We also work with users of our collections to create exhibitions.
Since UCD Archives joined Twitter, we have used it to tweet sequences of documents from our collections exploring specific topics. We have used this work to create Twitter Moments and linked to them on this page. These are of general interest but may be of particular interest as a resource for secondary schools.
If you have any questions about any of our exhibitions or are interested in collaborating with UCD Archives on a future exhibition, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
