The James Hardiman Library's substantial map collection comprises many different types of map, both historical and current. Maps are available in print and manuscript format, on microfilm, and electronically. The Library acquires cartographic material on legal deposit, by purchase and donation. The collection is constantly being developed as resources permit. Most maps relate to the island of Ireland, but there is a small collection of international maps.
Please see Map Resources in the Library and Online for detailed information about our map holdings.
The Library proactively supports and enhances the learning, teaching, and research activities of the University. The Library acts as a catalyst for your success as University of Galway’s hub for scholarly information discovery, sharing, and publication.
