CUAL is the research repository of the Connacht – Ulster Alliance, comprising Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Letterkenny Institute of Technology and Institute of Technology, Sligo. It is a resource for students, researchers and academics as well as the wider business, cultural and industrial community in the North West of Ireland in addition to providing a worldwide platform for the research output of the three Institutes. It was officially launched in 2014 in Killybegs.
CUAL contains Theses, Journal Articles, Conference Papers and Proceedings, but is also open to collecting other types of content in the future including reports, working papers, book chapters and multimedia items.
In general, material in CUAL will be in the subject areas in which the three Institutes are active, especially at post graduate level and these include the fields of Business, Social Sciences, Science and Engineering. However, CUAL may also include material in other subjects areas on a smaller scale which particular Institute staff or students may be pursuing.
