TCD - Early Printed Books and Special Collections

The Department of Early Printed Books and Special Collections (EPB) is located in the East Pavilion of the Old Library with access via the Berkeley Library. The Old Library, the home of research in Trinity College Dublin for 300 years, houses the oldest and most valuable books in Ireland.

Besides early printed books and pamphlets, EPB collects private press items, limited editions, signed books, Irish literature and much else that is of value to researchers. The collections are constantly increasing, both under legal deposit of new Irish works and by purchase or donation. Cataloguing is constantly in progress to ensure that as much of the collection as possible is available to readers. We look forward to adding you to the generations of researchers who have studied here.
