Through its dedicated website Lenus collates, indexes and disseminates the research output of the many organizations providing healthcare in the Republic of Ireland, along with their administrative, regulatory and clinical publications comprising the background and context for Irish healthcare. It fulfils an essential preservation function for health literature in Ireland and for advancing the principles of Open Access in health research.
