IRUS-UK: Standardised institutional repository usage statistics

Needham, Paul

This presentation focuses on another approach at standardizing institutional research data download statistics: IRUS-UK, a national aggregation service, which contains details of all content downloaded from participating IRs in the UK. By collecting raw usage data and processing them into item-level usage statistics, following rules specified by COUNTER, IRUS-UK provides comparable and authoritative standards-based data and also acts as an intermediary between UK repositories and other agencies.

This presentation was held as part of CARL-COAR Joint Webinar on 3/10/2017.
