The seven university members of the Irish Research eLibrary (IReL) consortium have signed up for access to the SPIE Digital Library, a collection of more than 270,000 full-text research papers in optics and photonics.

Irish Universities Association chairperson Gobnait O’Riordan described the selection of SPIE Digital Library as 'recognising the rapid growth of the optics and photonics discipline and its wide-ranging impact across multiple research areas. This agreement with SPIE illustrates our goal to further the quality of academic research from Ireland.'

As well as user-defined RSS feeds and email alerts, SPIE Digital Library recently launched a redesign of its abstract page structure to offer a number of social and collaborative Web 2.0 features such as social bookmarking, code-generation for bloggers, related multimedia content and integration with browser widgets. These tools enhance the finding, storing and sharing of information for researchers.
