Research Fellowships

Fellowships at the Edward Worth Library, Dublin


The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, offers two different types of fellowship scheme:


‘The Edward Worth Library Research Fellowship’.

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month), to be held in 2024, to encourage research relevant to its collections. The Worth Library is a collection of c. 4,300 books, left to Dr Steevens’ Hospital by Edward Worth (1676-1733), an early eighteenth-century Dublin physician. The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas. Further information about the collection and our catalogues may be found on our website:


The closing date is Friday 12 April 2024. For further details and application procedures may be found 2024-Info-Worth-Library-Fellowships. If you have any queries, please contact:
