Arrow Readership Maps are live

ARROW, DIT's Institutional Repository is a useful resource for students and researchers. It's a database of publications and research outputs by staff and students of DIT.  All material is free to download provided it is attributed to the author and is for non-commercial use.

 A new feature is now available called live readership maps. These show, in real time, which items are being downloaded and in what part of the world. You can look at the general readership map for Arrow here or more specifically view the College of Sciences and Health map.

There is also a very helpful Research Smarts section which includes bibliometrics FAQS as well as assistance on how to upload/add material to Arrow.
