  • In my lifetime, technology has greatly changed and enhanced both visits to libraries and access to remote libraries:
    1. Can bring tablet to library and can access my files and my website from my library desk.
    2. Can bring phone to library and take huge numbers of digital photos of documents, to read in detail later.
    3. Often on visits now, the main aim is to photograph, not to read stuff.
    4. Libraries in Ireland and in foreign countries publish material online, so I can research from home.
  • This is all the norm for people growing up now. But it is a wonderful dream for people like me who started researching in the 1980s.
