Abstract

The authors will produce a poster and an associated short paper on a proposed set of reports and standard statistics that would help academic administrators and other interested parties realize the full reporting potential of institutional repositories. Building upon currently available e-resources usage standards and statistics such as IRStats, COUNTER, ERMI, and the Association of Research Libraries' E-Metrics initiative, the poster will analyze the gap between what these statistics measure, and what is further needed from institutional repository reports, in the areas of Administration, Faculty and Student Productivity, Infrastructure, Usage and Impact of University Products, Participation & Growth in Digital Academia, and Legal & Policy Issues. Though an institutional repository cannot ever measure everything meaningful and useful about a college or university, this poster and paper will demonstrate its potential to aggregate on-demand data about the local institution's contributions and overall value in an age of digital scholarship, teaching and learning.
