AU-IR for AU Community
What is AU-IR?
AU-IR is a set of services that the university offers to the members of the AU community for the management and dissemination of digital materials created by the institution and our community members. Our goal is to collect and preserve the scholarly/creative output of our institution, and to make it available and accessible to the global, scholarly network. It is our total commitment to stewardship of the organization, distribution and long-term preservation of all AU academic works in digital format.
AU-IR is an open access system and can be accessed via general search engines such as Google. “Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.”
Currently, very few of the following relevant academic materials are being submitted to our AU-IR:
- Previously published materials (articles, book chapters, etc.)
- Research and Teaching publications
- Data files and database
- Conference works and unpublished scholarly works
- Working papers/technical reports
- Journal articles
