The Jackie Clarke Library

The first commission in 2006 to create an interpretative plan for the Jackie Clarke Library required an assessment of the collection, its meaning and interpretative value, the site location, services and operations and the provision of an interpretative plan. The plan identified capital investment, services and exhibition requirements, staff /management plan and operational costs, full conservation and storage and access planning. Specialist consultants in conservation and environmental control, security and information technologies were brought in by Scroope to provide detailed site specific technical specifications. Then in 2007 I was engaged to produce a detailed report for government. This report contributed to the successful acquisition of funding for the main project. In 2009, with Wendy Williams Design, we developed the promotional exhibition for Ireland West Airport.

Ann has been involved and continues to contribute to this project, taking it from a listing of a private collection to the Library and Archive it is today. With a comprehensive planning document, a master plan and exhibition design expertise she has shaped this project in countless ways. I find her creative mind, her expertise and professionalism invaluable; she always delivers an exceptionally fine job.
