Bringing two institutions together


A historic partnership between UCD and the National Library of Ireland, the Museum of Literature Ireland sets a precedent for large scale, collaborative public engagement projects in the cultural heritage sector.

Not only is the museum a trailblazing cultural capital project for UCD, it also allows both partners to expand beyond their traditional physical spaces. Through collaborative programming and promotion, MoLI will act as a catalyst through which to explore deeper links between UCD and the National Library in terms of collections, research, education and networks – all the while engaging the public with their exceptional collections and scholarship through a vibrant new visitor attraction.


“MoLI will connect new audiences with the collections of the National Library and UCD in unexpected and inspiring ways”

KATHERINE McSHARRY, Head of Outreach, National Library of Ireland
