TCD Library’s Digital Collections

John Grenham's latest Irish Roots column throws the spotlight on Trinity College Dublin Library’s Digital Collections (digitalcollections.tcd.ie). There would appear to be 4,703 works in the collection.

I didn't find navigation obvious. Grenham clearly got further with it than I did to laud "the extraordinary range of its contents" and find "from the point of view of genealogy, the most directly useful items are the eighteen manuscript volumes of Trinity’s own admission and matriculation registers from 1607 to 1907."
