The introduction to the recently launched Arts and Culture in Education Research Repository (ACERR) is geared towards existing and potential digital collections researchers or curators who may be interested in depositing those collections into the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI).

Although developed for ACERR it is open to all who may be interested in depositing their work with a national platform and storing their digital collections video, audio as well as datasets and text. Groups who may be interested include researchers, academics, librarians and archivists.
