About Institutional Repositories

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve, provide access to, and showcase that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, theses/dissertations, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
