Interested in visualizing, measuring, and comparing usage stats from your institutional repository?


IRUS-USA (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics USA) is an experimental collaboration between Jisc and the Digital Library Federation (DLF) at CLIR. Based on the successful IRUS-UK model and with the support of DLF’s Assessment Interest Group (the DLF-AIG), IRUS-USA provides COUNTER-compliant usage statistics for content downloaded from DLF member institutions whose repositories are participating in the pilot project.


Join us on 11am Eastern Time on Friday, March 23rd, for a webinar and Q&A session — about IRUS-USA, some related community projects and efforts by our Digital Library Assessment Interest Group (the DLF-AIG), what we’ve learned so far in this experiment, and evaluation and next steps.
