About the repository

NICTM Institute Repository

The NICTM Repository is an online “open access” archive of published research and other scholarly content produced by NICTM staff and students. The material in the archive is visible from anywhere on the internet without the need to log in. It provides a deposit service for academic staff and researchers, supported by the Repository Team constituted by the Information Technology Communication (ICT) Directorate and Library Services.
