About the Digital Library

The Digital Library is a project of Maynooth University Library and hosts digital material belonging to both Maynooth University and St. Patrick's College Maynooth.


The Digital Library is based on the repository software developed by the Digital Repository of Ireland [DRI]. The underlying technology is Hydra and Fedora Commons. A more in-depth exploration of the technology behind the DRI can be found in the 'Building the DRI' publication. The DRI in turn has been built by a research consortium of six academic partners: Royal Irish Academy (RIA), Maynooth University (MU), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG), and National College of Art and Design (NCAD).
