Use the link to access the video of the presentation made by Nick Sheppard, Leeds Metropolitan University at OR2012: The 7th International Conference on Open Repositories. A summary reads as follows: “This paper was originally proposed by: Brian Kelly, University of Bath, UK; Nick Sheppard, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK; Jenny Delasalle, University of Warwick; Mark Dewey, University of Bath, UK; Owen Stephens; Gareth Johnson, University of Leicester; and Stephanie Taylor, University of Bath, UK. Increasingly there is a need for quantitative evidence in order to help demonstrate the value of online services. Such evidence can also help to detect emerging patterns of usage and identify associated operational best practices. This paper seeks to initiate a discussion on approaches to metrics related to the provision of institutional repositories. The paper outlines the potential benefits which can be gained from providing richer statistics related to the use of institutional repositories and reviews related work in this area. The authors describe a JISC-funded project which harvested a large number of institutional repositories in order to identify patterns of use of metadata attributes and summarises key findings. The paper provides a case study which reviews plans to provide a richer set of statistics within one institutional repository service and then goes on to describe requirements from the researcher community. An example of how third party aggregation services may provide metrics on behalf of the repository community is given. The authors conclude with a call for repository managers, developers and policy makers to be pro-active in providing open access to metrics for open repositories.”
