THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest academic honour in Ireland.

DRI Updated Collection Policy Published

18 January 2021

The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is pleased to announce that we have published an updated version of our Collections Policy.

The Collection Policy provides an overview of the types of data, digital assets, and collections which the DRI aims to preserve, and should inform potential depositors on whether they may hold appropriate content for ingestion. DRI operates as a membership-based organisation. Generally, deposits are made by DRI members or those affiliated with DRI member organisations. DRI also runs a Community Archive Scheme which offers free membership to organisations that operate on a no or low-funded, voluntary basis. 

DRI is committed to diversifying its collections to represent a wide range of content from, by, and about Ireland. In the coming year we will be expanding our policy to widen the pathways to deposit to the DRI. 

The updated Collection Policy is freely accessible in the repository
