We are delighted that we are now able to show usage statistics for content in our institutional repository, Research@StAndrews:FullText. Thanks to the services provided by the Scottish Digital Library Consortium (SDLC), we now have 'page views' and 'downloads' from Google Analytics integrated into our DSpace platform and publicly available.
Visitors to the repository can see statistics for individual items:
with live links from the list of items to the most viewed item in that Collection.
To improve usability, links to the full text files have been moved to a more accessible position on the page, immediately above the Title.
Additional work has also been done to help capture more downloads that have been discovered via Google, and our overall statistics are already showing how we have recorded this traffic.
