Abstract

When institutional repository managers think about the impact of the IR, they typically consider download counts or other usage metrics. But what if our collections could be a pivotal data source for making important decisions across the university? Using the lens of faculty publications, we will discuss several strategies for uploading new submissions to ensure a thorough picture of the data. We will then consider examples for using this data, such as highlighting research for faculty promotion and tenure decisions and identifying where faculty publish to assist libraries in negotiating OA-friendly agreements with publishers.

Think Outside the Download: Growing IR Collections to Make Data-Driven Decisions

When institutional repository managers think about the impact of the IR, they typically consider download counts or other usage metrics. But what if our collections could be a pivotal data source for making important decisions across the university? Using the lens of faculty publications, we will discuss several strategies for uploading new submissions to ensure a thorough picture of the data. We will then consider examples for using this data, such as highlighting research for faculty promotion and tenure decisions and identifying where faculty publish to assist libraries in negotiating OA-friendly agreements with publishers.
