The RTÉ Archives and Libraries are a collection of photographs, sounds recordings, video footage and written records (of articles such as scripts) in various formats across a wide range of topics pertaining to Irish life and society.[1]

The collection is derived from the material used by Raidió Teilifís Éireann in their activities as national broadcaster for Ireland.

As RTÉ is part funded by a licence fee from Irish householders with televisions, it has a significant responsibility to maintain and update this collection and make it available to the general public.
