In 2015 the CONUL Collections, Preservation & Conservation Sub-Committee began a survey of Unique and Distinct Collections across the CONUL Libraries, with the aim to identify the size of the UDC’s, their age ranges, their accessibility via records and digital surrogate, and their preservation need. With this data we hope to promote the cultural and scholarly value of the collections, and to open discussion about collaborative work packages. Synergies, complementarity and overlaps run through all our libraries where collectively we tell the story of Ireland, its history, its people, and their preoccupations. This paper will present some of the highlights from our survey which we hope will lead to joint projects to expose our rich and valuable resources in new and innovative ways, and provide for their continued preservation.
