DSpace Repository

The Notre Dame University-Louaize Institutional Repository, known as DSpace, is a digital archive of the university's intellectual output accessible to others worldwide over the Internet. The institutional Repository contains a collection of research and publications written by academic authors, students, staff, alumni and research groups that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library but which are not controlled by commercial publishers.

Notre Dame University members are eligible to engage in self-archiving of their digitally-born materials within the institutional repository. For self-archiving please review the Guidelines, Thesis Submission and the Submission Guidelines pages.

OR, you can email the publications you would like to add to: specialcollections@ndu.edu.lb

    Children in Lebanon suffer desecrations of their rights because governments fail to enforce laws and regulations and to generate the economic and social conditions essential for a better living situation for children.

    A growing number of Lebanese inmates are incarcerated in congested and poorly maintained prisons. Poor imprisonment conditions and ill-treatment of inmates are key factors catalyzing further social delinquencies and mental health deterioration among prisoners and released detainees. Away from being a rehabilitation period, the prison sentence is a chance for reform and correction, a time where inmates are granted the education, mental and emotional support to come out as self-conscious and socially responsible individuals, ready to contribute to their surrounding communities.
