PLIRC Document Database

Posted in General News

The PLIRC Document Database is an initiative of the Prior Learning International Research Centre (PLIRC) at Thompson Rivers University. Intended for scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, the database provides a free, full-text resource of research-related documents in the area of prior learning assessment and recognition.

The database was made possible by the donation of basic software from Observal, a database recently established by EUCEN (European University Continuing Education Network) to the Canadian Institute for Recognizing Learning who in turn contributed the software to PLIRC. On-going support for the database comes from the community of researchers around the world, with financial support from Thompson Rivers University.
