“it was hugely valuable for Irish World Academy students to have the opportunity to interact with the richness and depth of the archive on ‘home turf’. It is a true example of accessibility and community engagement. Already, its effects are being felt throughout the student body, from BA to PhD levels and we hope that we can continue this initiative in the future”
