Heritage Resource Guide: making connections with the past and present
The Heritage Resource Guide compiles a range of online heritage resources. This include archives, digital collections, data bases and inventories, GIs applications, video, mobile apps, most of which can be accessed freely on personal devices.
It covers numerous subjects e.g. archaeology and history, architecture, coastal and marine, habitats and species, museums and collections.
If you notice that a favourite resource of yours is not included, please let us know. This Guide is a living, expanding list. It was compiled as part of the Heritage Council's contribution to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
Every organisation receiving funding for a project through The Heritage Council’s grants schemes must publicly acknowledge this support. Acknowledgement identifies that you are part of a movement that values heritage, cares for its community and encourages interest, ownership and engagement in this precious legacy.
