In our very own special collections library (Burns), you'll find an impressive array of material on Irish History. It's one of BC's areas of focus. If you're studying the topic it's well worth the trip to hold that history in your hands.
To do so, you should start by searching for material through BC Libraries' catalog and then ordering it (if you haven't registered, you'll be prompted). For a guide on the process, check out the "Finding Burns Material" page.
In addition to manuscript collections, Burns Library has many Irish printed materials from this time period. Some suggested search terms are below, which are filtered to only find material printed before 1930.
These are collections with extensive content, covering dozens of topics related Irish history. We recommend trying each of these to see if they are relevant to your research.
