Come visit our exhibition Life in Jacob's Factory: Then & Now

DIT Library Aungier Street has installed an exhibition about life for the Jacob’s factory workers in the 1913-1916 period, in contrast to life now.

Using the Jacob’s building as its focal point, the exhibition highlights living conditions in Dublin in the period from the 1911 Census to the 1916 Rebellion, the role the building played in the Easter Rebellion, and the working conditions and lives of the young men and women working in Jacob’s factory during the period, compared to those of a typical DIT student.

Why not visit the library and have a look? 

This exhibition complements the Library Services’ online exhibition and will remain in place until the end of the semester.
