Beauty is in the eye of the (informed) beholder. Where many of
us might overlook a grubby little copy book or an awkwardly named
interlibrary loan, others can help us understand them as treasures
that shine new understanding on Irish history. Learn how Laura
Flanagan in Texas and Dáibhí Ó Cróinín made unexpected finds; learn
more about special library collections from Aedín Clements; and
take a side trip to Thailand (because even hard working researchers
can use a break once in a while).
