The Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland has been chosen for the prestigious annual archive of Irish design, the 100 Archive.
The 100 Archive is a living archive which presents and discusses the past, present and future of Irish communication design by publishing 100 notable communication design projects, selected each year following an open call.
The Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland which launched officially in June of 2022 is an all-island and international collaborative research project working to create a virtual reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland, which was destroyed in the opening engagement of the Civil War on June 30th, 1922. The Virtual Record Treasury is a free and permanently accessible open access resource.
The VRTI has been developed by historians in Trinity College and computer scientists in the SFI ADAPT Centre, in partnership with five core partners: National Archives of Ireland, National Archives (UK), Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Irish Manuscripts Commission and the Library of Trinity College Dublin. It is funded by the Government of Ireland under Project Ireland 2040 through the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
