Northern Ireland

Guide to sources on the Conflict and Peace Process in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland -- A Library Guide

A guide to collections and databases in the Hesburgh Libraries and elsewhere, for research on  the conflict in Northern Ireland (the 'Troubles'), and the Peace Process. 

Many books and articles can be found by searching the Library catalog and OneSearch. There is a variety of other sources, from collections of pamphlets and films to databases of government information. Knowing about specific collections will make it easier to negotiate the large, dispersed and diverse collections such as microfilmed newspapers, collections of political pamphlets and posters, online databases, and collections of film and news footage.



CAIN: Conflict Archive on the INternet

For research on the conflict in Northern Ireland, we are indebted to Dr. Martin Melaugh and Ulster University for the CAIN Web Service. CAIN (Conflict Archive on the INternet) contains a large number of documents on the Conflict, as well as databases, bibliographies and other guides to further research. Note that documents included in the CAIN Web Service are under copyright.

As the future of CAIN is uncertain, please note that archived copies of the site are available at PRONI Web Archive, and The Wayback Machine
