DIT Library collaborates in bibliometrics research project

DIT Library with DCU, UCD and NUI Maynooth Llibraries have received funding for a collaborative project to produce bibliometrics training materials.

Bibliometrics is a methodology to measure research publications and assess research impact and the project aims to produce an online tutorial, worksheets, posters, booklets, and multimedia elements. Materials will be editable wherever possible and will include exemplars of adapting / using the materials for Computer Science.

The grant is from NDLR -  the Irish National Digital Learning Resources service. The materials will be hosted in the NDLR repository which is available for all to use under Open Access license.
