Irish Women's Writing: Unearthing Hidden Treasures

This guide highlights resources in the Boston College Libraries that are of value to anyone conducting research on Irish women writers, especially those women who wrote during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The guide also points to sources outside of Boston College.

Boston College Libraries own many titles by and about Irish women writers from the time period mentioned above.  To retrieve the titles, go to Advanced Search in Holmes, change "Anywhere in record" to "Local Collection," and search for "Irish Women Writers, Nineteenth, Early Twentieth Century".
