Competition time!

Name the new CUA Institutional Repository and win a Kindle.

The CUA Institutional Repository is now up and running. The pilot phase will be finalised in January and all test items will be removed. Resources will be added to it during the month of January with a formal launch scheduled for February. Each institute of technology in the alliance (GMIT, Sligo and Letterkenny) will be adding its own material.

The Connacht Ulster Alliance Institutional Repository needs a name. The one it has at the moment  doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, it’s way too long! The new name could, for example, be an acronym, like NUIG’s institutional repository, Access to Research At NUI Galway (ARAN) or Trinity’s Access to Research Archive (TARA). It might also be a word in Irish, signifying the idea or aspiration of the repository. STÓR, meaning hoard or treasure, is the Institutional Repository of Dundalk Institute of Technology. It’s up to you, as this competition is open to the students and staff of all CUA institutions.

So get the creative juices flowing and come up with a name for the Connacht Ulster Alliance Institutional Repository and win yourself a Kindle!

You can email your entries to bernie.lally@gmit.ie by Wednesday 19th February.
