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

    Cement is one of the most fundamentally used material all over the world. Among the many different properties of cement, compressive strength conventionally determined at the age of 28 days remains the most important parameter to assess cement quality. Waiting for 28 days to obtain a test result urges cement manufacturers to set quality parameters higher than the minimum accepted by norms, which means higher unnecessary manufacturing costs. The aim of this study is to assess the performance of cement mortar when nano silica (Nano-SiO2) is used as supplementary cementitious material (SCMs) and ...

    In this study, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) were synthesized in water and characterized using ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and Zeta potential analysis. AuNPs were coated with thiol functionalized polyethylene glycol (PEG-SH) and scFvD2B (antibody fragment of D2B mAb) well known to recognize the extracellular epitope of the human prostate specific membrane antigen (hPSMA). In fact, scFvD2B binds PSMA and induces its endocytosis, thereby marking PSMA as a docking site for the delivery of therapeutic agents. AuNPs successful coating was confirmed by DLS ...

    Lebanon is undergoing a critical economic crisis due to many internal and external factors. This crisis that started in 2015 is showcased clearly in the housing construction sector amplified by the decision of the Central Bank to suspend all subsidized housing loans in 2018. This resulted in an aggravated situation for young couples and low-income households who were heavily relying on these banking facilities. As part of the global strategy to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission, affordable sustainable housing is highlighted as a major aspect for providing the low-income ...

    Purpose - This study was conducted in order to investigate and analyze the underlying impact that mobile banking applications’ service quality has on customer satisfaction within the Lebanese context, specifically North Lebanon. Design/methodology/approach - Deduction was the reasoning approach embraced in this study. Using an online distributed questionnaire, there was a collection of 157 usable responses. Data was analyzed using SPSS. Moreover, correlations along with regression and other tests were used to test the considered hypotheses. Findings – The hypotheses considered in this study were ...

    Purpose - The purpose of this study was to understand the effects that a food and beverage FOH or BOH applicants’ physical appearance characteristics have on recruiters and hiring decisions in Lebanon. Hiring managers should be aware of physical appearance stereotypes and unethical hiring practices especially when physical appearance isn’t a job requirement. Design/methodology/approach - A questionnaire was distributed to employers and HR managers from several F&B organizations in Lebanon. The responses of 240 participants were analyzed using SPSS. In order to investigate the study’s ...
