At the opening of the Hardiman Building

The official opening of the new Hardiman Research Building at NUI Galway on May 1st 2014 provided me with an opportunity and a focal point/deadline to do this first, ‘soft’ launch of the Duanaire web site. The Whitaker Institute generously funded a leaflet:

There was also an opportunity to explain Duanaire — the iPad came in handy for that.

More generally, the Minister and guests got a run-through of the rather impressive range of activities underway at the Hardiman Research Building, in the Moore Institute and the Whitaker Institute. A key exhibit related to the ongoing work on the Abbey Theatre Archive at NUI Galway.

The event was a great showcase also, for the close links between all this work and the facilities and expertise of the James Hardiman Library, reflected not least in the excellent new Special Collections/Archives Reading Room.

    Listening to music is very soothing for many people.
