USE the Special Collections in the Library

The Library of Trinity College Dublin is a major research library of international repute, supporting learning and research needs across all disciplines of the College.

Historic research materials are primarily in the care of the Research Collections Division, which encompasses Manuscripts & Archives (M&A), Early Printed Books & Special Collections (EPB), the Glucksman Map Library, and Music Collections. However, primary research materials may also be found in other sections of the Library – for example, the Research Area of the Berkeley Library. In addition, digitised copies of some research materials are available on the Digital Collections website.

For example, the collection of rare and valuable books held in the Library include this version of Orlando Furioso.
