The Abbey Theatre is partnering with National University Ireland, Galway to make the almost two million items in the Abbey’s archives available online. Digitising the theatre posters, prints, programmes, light, set, and costume designs, and audio files will take between three and four years, according to the Abbey Theatre’s website.

The digitisation process began in September on NUIG’s campus. A multidisciplinary team of NUIG’s researchers, students, archivists are currently working with the 1.8 million objects in the collection.
