The Library at LyIT has partnered with Google Scholar to facilitate direct access to electronic journals and other electronic content that we have subscribed to on your behalf. This service is supplemental and is not a replacement for LOLA or the library catalogue you need to search subject specific and interdisciplinary academic databases for in-depth, comprehensive academic research. More information can be found here.
Joint Institutional Repository
The libraries of LyIT, IT Sligo and GMIT recently launched an Institutional Research Repository in February of this year. The Repository provides a platform for scholarly output and research for staff and students at LyIT, preserving a permanent record of the research output of the Institute and increasing the visibility of CUA research. The Repository will contain research theses including PhDs, Doctorates and Master degrees, in addition under the National Principles for Open Access Policy Statement, the Repository will also gather other research outputs such as journal articles, monographs, books and book chapters, conference papers and working papers. A full range of policies covering Open Access (OA), copyright, licensing, deposit and content will comply with internationally accepted standards used by national and international repositories. In the near future we will have archives held in the Repository harvestable by RIAN which would showcase our research to a national and international audience.
