Archiving our Past and Future |Laois Local Studies Digital Archive

Laois Local Studies is a repository for collections of documents, books and memorabilia, all of which enhance the local history and culture of Laois for its citizens, and the digital archive platform promotes these collections now and in the future. It also facilitates the promotion of Laois and its culture, history and to a wider population including the Diaspora.

The digitization of both public and private records pertaining to Laois began in 2018 and created an online platform to ensure wide access to the records for researchers and historians with research and evaluation on the appropriate software for the scanning, storage, display and retrieval of the digitized archives of County Laois.

This year Laois County Library Service continues to digitize more of Laois Collections for users to listen to and watch unique Laois records remotely .
