Poetry — What has arrived from Ireland?

Posted on October 13, 2017 in New Books

Reviewing the titles of new poetry books, I came once more to the wonderful title of Paula Meehan’s 
Imaginary Bonnets with Real Bees in Them. I then discovered that I could listen to her lecture on a UCD Scholarcast.

Finding Fiction

Posted on July 25, 2017 in New Books


Books posing together for a photo.

Bookshops display bestsellers and attractive fiction, making book selection easy and pleasant. Academic libraries, on the other hand, have fiction integrated with literary criticism and it’s not always easy to just walk in and find a novel to read.  Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Library has a great collection of Irish fiction, but identifying authors and books in the catalog takes time.

So this list is a selection of Irish fiction available for loan in the Hesburgh Library.

DRB SmythThe latest issue of the DRB features an essay by Professor Jim Smyth, “The Big Smoke” in which he reviews Dublin: the Making of a Capital City, by David Dickson.  This book has not yet reached the Hesburgh Library shelves, but the “on order” note is in the catalogue, where you may request it and receive a note when it arrives.


An additional feature of the DRB that is of great interest to librarians is the New Books listing.
