DIT Library and partners win funding for bibliometrics research

Four Irish academic libraries, UCD, DCU, DIT and Maynooth, are collaborating to produce online learning resources to support bibliometrics and research assessment awareness and training.

Bibliometrics is a set of methods used to measure research publications and is one key approach being used to assess research impact.

This project will produce a range of materials hosted on the NDLR dSpace platform that can be downloaded, customised and used under Creative Commons license by anyone providing bibliometrics awareness and training.
The successful bid was made for project funding from the NDLR LInCS (National Digital Learning Resources - Learning Innovation Community Support) 2010 programme ( with the materials available at the end of the year and showcased in the annual NDLR event.
