CommentThere are two separate institutions in Maynooth: the National University of Ireland, Maynooth and St Patrick's College, Maynooth. The Russell Library serves both institutions. Some of the information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the archive. These lists were compiled by library staff and we are grateful for their assistance. Where partial or no lists were available, staff of the Women's History Project constructed an outline list.
