Welcome to the RDS Library & Archives Online Catalogue

The RDS Library provides an interesting and diverse selection of material available for borrowing by Members of the Society.

The RDS Library also holds the records of the Royal Dublin Society since its foundation and a general library which contains over 100,000 volumes including over 4,000 relating to Ireland, many of them old and rare.

The collections of the RDS Library reflect the Foundation interest in the areas of science, agriculture, industries and arts, especially within an Irish context.
