New IR Cross Search Service launched in Ireland

RIAN is a newly launched cross-search service for content held within 7 HEI IR's in Ireland- DCU, NUIG, NUIM, TCD, UCC, UCD, UL. An outcome of a Strategic Innovations Fund project, it was sponsored by the Irish Universities Association (IUA) and funded by the Irish Higher Education Authority (HEA).

The aim of the service is 'to harvest to one portal the contents of the Institutional Repositories of the seven university libraries, in order to make Irish research material more freely accessible, and to increase the research profiles of individual researchers and their institutions.'
