Customer: University College Dublin

University College Dublin (UCD)


Founded in 1854, is the largest research university in Ireland. It has over 1,482 faculty and 32,000 students. As a result of an international bid, 4Science has been awarded a contract to upgrade and maintain their institutional repository, including harvesting by the RIAN Irish national portal and the integration with the internal Research Information Management System. The Research Repository UCD,, managed by the UCD Library, is a digital collection of open access scholarly research publications. It collects, preserves and makes freely available publications including peer-reviewed articles, working papers and conference papers created by UCD researchers. 4Science upgraded the repository to DSpace-CRIS and developed an analysis module, based on the data collected in the SOLR statistics core and enriched to allow an easy join between statistical data and content metadata, allowing aggregation by community, collection, submitter, authors, etc. DSpace-CRIS is integrated with the Symplectic Elements installation at UCD.
