About this Website

This website is created and maintained by staff of the library's ICT & Information Services Department at Library Headquarters, Ennis, County Clare, Ireland. This 'website' is in reality a collection of separate websites and services, including the Online Catalogue, Foto (the photograph collection), the Music of Clare project, the online Forums, the library blog, the eBooks service, the GoogleMini search facility and the 'main' website covering library services and information about the culture of County Clare. It would not have been possible to create the wide range of information about County Clare on this site without the contributions of CLASP, a FÁS Community Response Scheme sponsored by four library staff members which ran from 1995 to 2006, and numerous volunteers from around the world who have helped us in transcribing material, for example for the Tithe Applotment Books project. We are very grateful to all those who have donated material for inclusion on the website. We are also very grateful to all those who have identified people and places in our photo collection, and to all who have provided so much valuable information on our online Forums. We are also grateful to Rainer Kosbi for developing his online map systems, and to Eric Stackhouse and his staff at Pictou Antigonish Regional Library, Nova Scotia, for their generous co-operation re the online forums.
