This week we have reached another landmark, with 1500 items in Research@StAndrews:FullText. Only 9 months ago we celebrated the 1000th deposit, after the repository had been in existence for 5 years.
The sharp increase has been helped by one of our special projects to create an archive for Sustainable Development Commission reports, as well as deposits coming in from our Research Information System PURE.
Our newly implemented statistics have also revealed a huge increase in usage, with 8653 visits in February 2012 (compared to 2054 in Feb 2011) and 3623 downloads (double those of any previous month). One of the most downloaded item was the recently added ebook Revisiting Geneva: Robert Kingdon and the coming of the French Wars of Religion.
It hopefully won't be long until we celebrate the 2000th item, and perhaps 10,000 visits in a month!...
