The New York University's Archives of Irish America provides research on the Irish migration experience, as well as on American Irish ethnicity. Some of the links that can be found on the Archive's homepage are "Ireland House Oral History Collection", "Mick Moloney Collection of Irish-American Music & Popular Culture", the current "Exhibits" of the Archives, and what type of "Collections" the Archives contains. Starting with the link to "Collections", visitors can get a taste of how the collections are categorized, such as "Personal Papers", "Organizational Records", and "Oral History". Visitors can also view brief descriptions of each collection in a category by clicking on "Description" across from the name of the collection. By linking to "Exhibits" from the homepage, visitors can watch vignettes about the New York Irish community, and view two quality online exhibits, "The Spin On Ireland: The Irish Music Record Cover Art Since 1950" and "1981 Hunger Strikes: America Reacts". Visitors shouldn't miss clicking the homepage link to the "Ireland House Oral History Collection" to listen to a few of the interviews, conducted by NYU students, with 21 Irish Americans from a range of backgrounds. There are also photos and ephemera that accompany a biography of each person interviewed.
