STOR: Open Access Research Repository

STÓR is Dundalk Institute of Technology’s Open Access (OA) Institutional Repository and is run by the Library. The aim of our repository is to make DKIT’s research output, including theses and research papers, freely available to the public via the internet. STOR is linked to RIAN (, the National Research Repository for Third Level Institutions.
