The 1916 Easter Rising Web Archive was a collaborative project in 2015/2016 between the Library of Trinity College Dublin (University of Dublin), the Bodleian Libraries (University of Oxford), and the British Library. The project aimed to identify, collect, and preserve online resources that can contribute to an understanding of the causes, course, and consequences of the 1916 Easter Rising, and help to enable critical reflection on the Easter Rising and the diverse ways it was commemorated and engaged with in 2016. The context for the project was the UK legal deposit environment in which the six Legal Deposit Libraries1 (LDLs) work together to help preserve the UK’s knowledge and memory.
