Irish Studies Committee

WESS Newsletter

Fall 2015, Vol. 39, No. 1



The American Conference on Irish Studies has recently formed an ad hoc committee on libraries and archives. The group hopes to provide a forum for discussion of subjects related to Irish Studies collections, to form collaborations, and to work towards providing improved information on collections and resources to the academic community.

The ACIS website now has a members’ Libraries and Archives Portal, accessed via the menu at the bottom of the ACIS home page.

The ACIS Annual Meeting will be at the University of Notre Dame, March 30th to April 3rd, 2016. Paper proposals on any aspect of Irish Studies library collections or digital projects are invited. Submissions are due by November 15th, 2015. For information, see ACIS 2016: The Worlding of Irish Studies.
