The Connacht-Ulster Alliance (CUA) is a strategic partnership formed by Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) and Institute of Technology, Sligo (IT Sligo). The CUAL institutional repository is an online, Open Access repository of the research and scholarly output of the CUA Institutes including Campus Companies. The service is jointly administered by the CUA libraries. Each of the three institutes holds collections of post graduate theses and staff and researchers at the institutes regularly publish articles in journals or deliver papers at conferences. The institutional repository makes these more accessible to researchers and provides a showcase for the institutes' research activity.

Material hosted by the institutional repository is searchable on Google. Putting electronic copies of CUA research on the repository makes it visible to researchers from around the world who increasingly use Google scholar to locate material. This provides visibility for research papers that may result in increasing citation rates.

If you wish to have journal articles, conference presentations or posters uploaded onto the CUAL Open Repository, please contact: Mary Hannigan, extension 6156 or email Mary Hannigan or Angela McGinley, extension 6168 or by email Angela McGinley

You can access the CUAL Repository from the link: Institutional Research Repository
