There are approximately 100,000 works in the Prints & Drawings collection, an estimated three-quarters originating with the RDS Library and the collection of Dr. Jaspar Joly, which were transferred to the National Library of Ireland on its establishment in 1877.

The Library continues to acquire both modern and antiquarian material to develop the collection and to support existing holdings. The collection is a visual record of Ireland from the 17th to the 21st century.
