Measuring Reuse of Institutionally-Hosted Grey Literature

Ayla Kenfield, Elizabeth Kelly, Caroline Muglia, Genya O'Gara, Santi Thompson & Elizabeth Woolcott

Newly developed multimedia COUNTER standards for IRs help guide collection and analysis of standardized use data but lack qualitative or storytelling measures that can add much needed nuance to assessment. Content reuse, or how often and in what ways digital library materials are utilized and re-purposed, can...
