From Silicon Republic:
The National Library of Ireland (NLI) is continuing the push towards greater digitisation of its enormous collection with the launch of a new catalogue of 10,500 historic images.
This new release means brings the online archive’s image total to 63,000 items that tell the story of Ireland and are now freely available worldwide through the National Library catalogue.
The technology behind the archive, known as the VuFind Discovery Interface, has been developed and lead by the NLI and has seen the open-source viewing software being expanded to hundreds of other similar libraries across the globe, particularly by several large consortia, as well as national, public and academic libraries in 26 countries.
Note: Option to limit results to only digitized materials from very first catalog search.
