Launch of the Deaf Heritage Centre Library

The Deaf Heritage Centre Library was launched by Dr. John Bosco Conama of the Centre for Deaf Studies, Trinity College, Dublin. We at the DHC would like to thank Desmond Murphy and Dominic McGreal for ensuring the establishment of the library.

What’s in our Library?

  • A collection of old letters, documents, minutes, AGM Reports, correspondence letters etc from Deaf organisations.
  • Most documents are very old and preserved to keep the records from early 19th to 21st centuries.
  • If the student or scholar wants to research the document they need a proof letter from the university or an approval from the Deaf Heritage Centre Board.
  • The DHC library also holds a collection of Deaf magazines from Deaf organisations around in the world. These include:
    • Irish Deaf Journal/News – Irish Deaf Society
    • Links/Deaf Matters – Deafhear
    • Conact Magazines – Stan Foran
    • St. Joseph’s Annual Book – St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys
    • Deaf magazines from Europe, USA, Australia, Asia, etc..
