Lenus Irish Health Repository included into RIAN web-based OA portal

It has been announced that LENUS has been included as a participating repository in RIAN, the national open access portal which collates the research output of ten higher education repositories in Ireland.

Since its establishment by the HSE’s Regional Library and Information Service in 2009, Lenus has championed and promoted the dissemination of health service research and its availability in RIAN is a major development in Irish open access publishing.

RIAN is a web-based Open Access portal that harvests and displays the content of the repositories of the seven universities and the DIT in Ireland.

This is a very welcome development and a great achievement as Lenus is one of the first non university repositories to be included in the RIAN Portal.
