Dublin Historical Record Vol. LXIV, No. 1 (Spring 2011) is the most recent published number of the journal.
The Old Dublin Society Library
The library has its origin through the donation of books and other material by members and from review copies submitted to the Dublin Historical Record. The collection is diverse in nature but with a strong Dublin related theme. This includes items commonly available in public libraries, but also ephemera and pamphlet type material produced for particular occasions or by special interest groups. There are also examples of early Dublin printings of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The library welcomes suitable donations from members and friends who wish to support its future development and growth.
The Old Dublin Society gratefully acknowledges the support of the Heritage Council in the provision of funding which assisted with cataloguing the library in 2008. In the course of that work many older books were found to be in need of repair and rebinding. The Council of the Society agreed such work should be undertaken as soon as possible and this is currently in hand with a local book binder. Consequently while items may appear in the catalogue, if they are in need of attention they may not be currently available to consult.
The Library of the Old Dublin Society is located in the Royal Dublin Society (RDS), Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
Books and other catalogued material in the collection are available for reference only and may not be borrowed. The catalogue is hosted by the RDS Library site. Intending visitors should e-mail the RDS library prior to visiting firstname.lastname@example.org
