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.


The RTÉ Archives logo incorporates RTÉ current corporate logo with a take on the 1967 corporate logo for the word archive. There are two versions of the logo, generally the first letter of the word Archive is used (as see in description box) but also where the full word is used.
