Abstract

Despite the social and political divisions of Northern Ireland, a unique archive of materials documenting the ‘Troubles’ has been established. This article briefly examines how the collection was built up, noting some of the difficulties inherent in this process, and discusses the issues to be resolved in cataloguing and indexing this very diverse collection to maximize access for both academic researchers and the local community.
