Almost 10,000 downloads of DIT SLWC project reports

Since 2012, we have been putting the outputs of student-community research projects on the DIT Digital Repository, Arrow, to make sure as many people as possible can access the new knowledge co-created by our students and community partners.

We recently checked the figures and the combined total number of downloads has almost reached 10,000!

The single most downloaded article was a report on Shopper Travel Behaviour in Dublin City Centre by Spatial Planning students and staff, co-ordinated by David O’Connor, in collaboration with the Irish Environmental Network and the Dublin Cycling Campaign, which had 2230 downloads.

Hot on its heels was a report exploring the Use of Web 2.0 Tools to Support Knowledge Sharing Within the Non-Profit Sector, a collaboration between Christina Shannon on the MSc in Computing and the LIFELINE project, with 1910 downloads.

The third most downloaded article is an Analysis of Road Safety and Older Driver Behaviour, by Tara McHugh, on the MSc in Environmental Health and Safety Management, in collaboration with the Garda Road Safety Unit as part of the DIT College Awareness of Road Safety (CARS) project, which had 1278 downloads.

Congratulations to all those involved in these valuable research collaborations!
