Book here for this free online event.

Join the 100 Archive and National Library of Ireland (NLI) for an event to celebrate Irish digital heritage, what it shows us about change in Ireland over the last ten years and how we can save this digital record for the future.  

Through the NLI Web Archive, the National Library of Ireland has captured and preserved 10 years of digital life in Ireland. Meanwhile, the 100 Archive has created 10 annual selections of contemporary Irish communication design. What can these resources tell us about life in Ireland in the last 10 years, and how changing ways of communicating have in turn changed us? Join the 100 Archive, the National Library of Ireland and a panel of commentators to celebrate Irish digital heritage and discuss how and why we want to preserve it.

We look forward to seeing you for some virtual birthday cake and interesting discussions:
