Impact of a Repository

It will be very easy to measure the sucess of an IR. The first indicator will be how sucessful we are at filling the repository. This will be a matter of how good a job we do selling the idea of repository and how easy we can make it for members of the community to add to the repository.

The second indicator will be the amount of traffic that the repository receives. Access logs provide reliable accounting of both local and remote traffic.

A third factor maybe the increase of cites and attributions of use of research and learning objects created at WCSU.
