Repositories at Glasgow Caledonian University
The library runs a digital repository in partnership with Academic Research Development. It stores the outputs of publicly funded research projects and makes them available to an external audience. It brings together the output of the University’s research activity in one place and at the same time helps raise internal awareness of what we do in research.
The repository gives researchers worldwide access to our research output, which helps promote citation and will foster collaboration via the publication alert functionality of the system.
GCU ask academic staff to submit details of their research publications to the repository. These may be used as part the submission to the UK Research Excellence Framework.
edShare@GCU is a newer repository for the GCU community. It allows staff to store, share and preserve a wide variety of learning and teaching materials in one central location. Staff can upload and manage their own resources and have the option to share them openly on the internet, with all members of the University, or with a select group of students or staff. The repository accepts any permanent resources created by GCU staff and provides a point of contact for copyright and intellectual property rights (IPR) advice within the GCU community.
