About this Event

Collecting and Keeping the National Memory.

The 2019 Mary Mulvihill Lecture is being given by Dr Sandra Collins, Director of the National Library of Ireland.

Dr Sandra Collins will explore the importance of physical and digital collecting and the challenge of digital preservation, motivated by the memory keeping we all do on a personal and family level. The talk explores the role of a National Library in the memory of a nation. Dr Collins will also explore her own journey from mathematics to the National Library and how maths can lead anywhere!

Dr Sandra Collins is the Director of the National Library of Ireland. The NLI collects and makes available the recorded memory of Ireland, caring for more than 10 million items, including books, newspapers, manuscripts, ephemera, photographs, websites and digital media

This is the fourth Mary Mulvihill Lecture, WITS remembers our founder Mary Mulvihill the science journalist with the lecture. We invite a speaker to talk about an area of their interest from science, technology, the arts and anything that reflects Mary's wide range of interests.

The 2019 Mary Mulvihill Lecture is supported by the National Library of Ireland.
