LAUR is an Open-Access digital archive of the scholarly output of the Lebanese American University community. Depositing materials in the LAUR is voluntary. Faculty are encouraged to make their work openly accessible to LAU community and the rest of the world.
LAUR is an Open Repository. When copyright permission is not available, metadata of material will be recorded and the item’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or a URL to the publisher’s website — where a copy of the full text is available — will be included. This will enable those users who have subscription access to the journal to view the full text.
Selected materials are collected in a centralized, searchable and highly visible location.
The repository currently includes all graduate student theses, and will include LAU’s research reports, journal articles, book chapters, digital images and any other relevant data which can be easily harvested by search engines such as Google.
