The Digital Repository of Ireland, a trusted national infrastructure for the preservation, curation and dissemination of Ireland’s humanities, social sciences, and cultural heritage data, was officially launched on Thursday 25 June 2015.
Dr Paul Dunlop and Dr Peter Wilson from Ulster University’s School of Environmental Sciences, in conjunction with colleagues from Geological Survey of Northern Ireland and Mountaineering Ireland, have combined their academic expertise and enthusiasm for mountain landscapes, to compile a stunning new guide – ‘From Rocks to Ridges’.
Funded by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, the guide is a valuable companion for walkers and climbers. It features a geological map with accompanying text and photographs that explore linkages between rocks, soils and landforms. It is intended to aid identification of key landscape features that can be seen in the uplands of the north of Ireland and in other upland areas around the world.
Mountaineering Ireland, the governing body for the sport will be distributing the guide through affiliated clubs and societies to reach their 13,000 members and the general public.
We have been given trial access to the journal Future Oncology. The trial runs until 1/9/15 and is limited to on-campus access only.
The journal includes news and views, literature awareness regarding new biomarkers, concise commentary and analysis, reports from the conference circuit and full review articles. Topics covered include:
Biological processes involved in cancer and how new understanding will impact treatment
Clinical implications and applications for new biomarkers
Impact of molecular genetics on prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment
Integration of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches
Profiles of new anticancer agents
Selective and ‘personalized’ approaches
Screening programs and methodology
Access to the journal is via our A-Z listing of electronic journals on the Library & ICT tab on the Portal and Library web site.

Please note that between Tuesday 5th May – Friday 22th May, students will need their ID cards to enter the Library in Magee as you will need to swipe the sensor on the wall to the right of the revolving door in order to gain entry. See here for further details.
To help maintain a quiet environment during revision and exams, entry to Magee Library will be restricted from Tuesday 5th May – 22 May 2015.
You will need your ID card to swipe the sensor on the revolving door or on the sensor on the wall in order to gain entry. If you can’t find your ID card, you need to get a replacement from Academic Registry. Ask at the Issue Desk first, as ID cards are sometimes handed in to Lost Property.If your ID card doesn’t work, you can get it reset at the Security Desk in Block MD (main building).
Other registered library users, e.g. Step Up, Alumni or Sconul card holders should bring their Library card with them, press the buzzer above the swipe-card sensor on the wall and they will be let in by staff. Other members of the public with genuine research queries may also ask for entry at the front door.
We regret that students from secondary or grammar schools are not permitted entry during this restricted period, unless they hold Step Up cards.
We would ask for everyone’s co-operation to maintain a quiet building during the revision period. Please let staff know immediately if you are being disturbed by others’ inconsiderate behaviour.
All policy, guidance and advice published by the Society and College of Radiographers can be found here including the Code of Professional Conduct, which includes advice relevant to patient care, communication, what it is to be a professional and how and why professionalism is so vital. It also includes the Education and Career Framework for the Radiography Workforce, which defines outcomes for the whole workforce and how progression might be achieved and The Scope of Practice 2013, which defines the current scope of practice for the professional workforce for diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy.
