Measuring the Impact of Digitized State Agricultural Documents – It’s Not Just Chicken Feed
MetadataShow full item record
Digitization of our state’s legacy agricultural documents and making those publications accessible worldwide on the Internet since 2005 has resulted in large numbers of downloads of them. Download statistics from five agricultural publications in our DSpace Institutional Repository (IR) have totaled about 2.7 million downloads from 2005 to the present among 4,774 publications. This averages 560 downloads per publication with a range of 10 to 60,900 downloads per item. The IR is set up to allow and enhance harvesting by Google and 80% of the downloads are directly from Google or Google Scholar links. There is real online demand for retrospective agricultural publications from 1888 to 2009.
