Dublin City Library and Archive to deposit collections in DRI

Dublin City Library and Archive are contracting a Digital Archivist for ingesting collections into DRI

Dublin City Library and Archive, which houses Dublin City Archives and the Dublin and Irish Collection, has over 43,000 digital objects currently available online, plus an additional 9,000 objects (approx.) which have been digitised and catalogued offline.

In 2018, Dublin City Library and Archive are joining DRI in an exciting new partnership to upload existing digital object collections to the Digital Repository of Ireland.

Dublin City Council is now seeking quotations for assistance with this work from professionally qualified, self employed librarians/archivists with digital archiving skills and from companies which provide these services through professionally-qualified librarians/archivists.
