It is the largest library in Ireland and has been a legal deposit library for Ireland and the United Kingdom since 1801[1]. The Library continues to add to its collections through purchases, private donations, acquisitions and as a library of legal deposit. [1]The privilege was first given in the year 1801 (41 Geo.

By the Industrial and Commercial Property (Protection) Act of the Irish Free State 1927, the copyright privilege of the Library was continued in respect of books published in Ireland.
