The Hesburgh Library’s Irish Studies Collection supports and reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Irish Studies at Notre Dame. The window display of recent additions to the collection include the great Atlas of the Irish Famine, as well as collections of poetry, books on politics and religious studies, biographies ranging from Bram Stoker through Archbishop to David Norris, correspondence of Archbishop McQuaid, and many other subjects.

This display highlights notable Black Notre Dame graduates, both undergraduate and graduate. We felt that this display was the perfect opportunity to educate the Notre Dame community about some of the very accomplished people who walked through the very same buildings we do today. From Condoleezza Rice to Tim Brown, Blacks have made their mark both on and off the Notre Dame campus and we hope this display inspires people to follow in their example.
