Abstract

In 2017, Columbus State University’s coordinator of the Columbus Community Geography Center (CCGC) and a CSU librarian began to expand the institutional repository into a community nexus. Specifically, to create a hub serving community members with maps, reports, and other projects to aid them in civic planning and increase their awareness of problems in the region. Using PlumX Metrics and the Digital Commons dashboard, the presenters demonstrate how data shows who engages with CCGC’s resources. They also offer suggestions for improving metrics in Digital Commons to track interest in community-based research.
