Dublin City Public Libraries and Archive organises and hosts a range of talks and other events, some of which are recorded and made available online. A recording may consist of audio alone or, in some instances, be accompanied by a presentation given at the event.
How to Access
Recordings can be accessed by the following means:
- Via the Netvibes-based Library Web Portal, which also serves as the default page on PCs in our branch libraries. Quick and easy access here to (a) literary talks, readings and workshops, (b) history and heritage talks (including our acclaimed Gilbert lecture series from recent years), and (c) Culture Night readings from 2008 and 2009.
- History and heritage talks (including our acclaimed Gilbert lecture series from recent years), with 'about' information, on our sister site, dublinheritage.ie
About the Recordings
Recordings are usually in mp3 audio format. You can listen online using the provided player or download mp3 for listening on your computer, laptop or on a mobile device.
Some recordings, you will discover, are accompanied by a presentation, and these 'slidecasts' (as they are known) can be followed merely by hitting the play button!
We also have video recordings, which you can watch on YouTube or Vimeo or embedded on the websites listed above and elsewhere.
Don't forget also to subscribe to our Heritage and History podcasts AND our literary talks, readings and workshops podcasts (copy and paste links into your favourite podcast client, e.g. iTunes, Juice, Zune)
