Web archiving the Irish experience of COVID-19

As part of our web archiving programme, we are collecting websites that tell the story of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ireland. Websites that will be archived include those that capture the major efforts across Government, the health sector, and Irish society to combat the pandemic. 

As so much of the contemporary record is digital, it's important to collect the websites that tell reflect this moment in Irish life. Building this digital COVID-19 collection will ensure that the Irish story of this global pandemic and the efforts of Irish people to combat the coronavirus are collected and preserved for future generations. It’s estimated that, on average, a website is changed or deleted within 100 days. If we don’t archive these websites now, much of their contents will be lost forever.

You can help us to identify the websites that represent the Irish experience and actions taken during this pandemic. Anyone who wishes to nominate a website for consideration can fill in the form here and email it to us at webarchives@nli.ie
