What this means for you

Academic, teacher, student or researcher

You will be able to discover information through a flexible and innovative tool that meets your personal requirements.

Technical developer or repository administrator

Our platform will harvest and aggregate a wide range of data and technologies, providing a middleware service that you can repurpose into your own web environments. This will make it easier, faster and cheaper for you to respond to the unique needs of your internal customers and stakeholders through customised, personalised access to academic information sources.

Research or academic organisations

The Institutional Repository Search makes it possible for your content to be used by more people and in countless ways. For example, your audience could receive personalised alerts, tag content within their own social networking space or collaborate with like-minded communities. Because our technology has been developed with flexibility in mind, you will be able to offer rich, dynamic functionality, quickly and cost effectively.
