Best for Digital Good: The Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland04/03/23
Winner of the Digital for Good Award at the Golden Spiders 2023.
An Taoiseach Micheál Martin at the launch to the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland, Dublin Castle:
“The Virtual Record Treasury offers an enduring legacy for our Decade of Centenaries. It is an invaluable historical resource for people of all traditions across the island and for everyone of Irish heritage around the world. It is an immense achievement and testament to the commitment and dedication of the Beyond 2022 project team and the archival partners.
Free public access to this wealth of digitised archival material will encourage new generations of historians and genealogists – professional and amateur – to share previously unexplored stories and narratives, which have left their imprint in our collective memories and on the local landscape.”
At Ebow The Digital Agency we worked with the team in Beyond 2022 / Virtual Record Treasury to deliver a groundbreaking website that houses and helps power the search, API’s and knowledge graph of this leading-edge digital humanities project.
Below is a selection of video, images and insights from the project and our approach.
