Panel: IRUS In Bloom: Expanded Openness for Institutional Repository Usage Statistics

Hannah Rosen1, Laura Wong2, Jim Ottaviani3

The Jisc IRUS service (institutional Repository Usage Statistics) has existed for several years, consolidating COUNTER-conformant statistics from institutional repositories and helping to demonstrate their value and impact, both internally and in comparison with other institutions. However, over the last year, IRUS has been improved in various ways that expand the service’s ability to support open knowledge. The presentation will go over three areas of improvement.

First, Hannah Rosen will be discussing recent IRUS updates, which, among other things, has introduced COUNTER Release 5 conformance, removed barriers to viewing IR usage statistics and now facilitates international usage, sharing, and awareness. Then Laura Wong will be talking specifically about use cases surrounding knowledge sharing related to the COVID-19 pandemic within IRUS. Finally, Jim Ottaviani will be presenting on the challenges and benefits of using the new IRUS interface across multiple repositories in a single institution.
