There are approximately 100,000 works in the Prints & Drawings collection, an estimated 15,000 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.

With effect from 14 August 2017, access to original material in the Prints and Drawings and Ephemera collections will be suspended for the period of the National Library's 'Reimagining the Library' development project
