There are many appropriate resources that you can use to find relevant information to allow you to conduct your research and publish its outcomes. The Library website (www.ul.ie/library) contains links to important databases (see below). The UL Institutional Repository (ULIR) contains the University’s research publications and other research outputs.
The Library Search allows you to search for physical items in the Library but also searches most of the library's electronic resources as well as publications in the ULIR.
The Glucksman Library in the University of Limerick supports researchers in many different ways, including via the provision of quality research materials including books, e-journals and databases. In addition, there are a number of librarians that can help support your research including the Research Services Department and the Faculty Librarians.

Intro on Research Services LibGuide.
Evidence-Based Research can be defined as:
“the use of prior research in a systematic and transparent way to inform a new study so that the research is answering questions that matter in a valid, efficient and accessible manner.” (EVBRES 2018).
There is a renewed focus post covid on the methodological quality of the evidence and on open science to enhance the accessibility to and the reporting of the evidence.
Visit the Library’s dedicated LibGuide for more guidance on the process.
