ValpoScholar, Valpo’s institutional repository, has just recorded its 500,000th download after only two years of operation.
Since March 2011, ValpoScholar has collected over 2,500 files from Valpo faculty, staff, and students in addition to publishing four professional journals and three student publications. These files are integrated and indexed with most major search engines, making Valpo scholarship and creative work easily available to the world with one simple search.
Most faculty, staff, and students receive monthly notifications of how many times their files have been downloaded, indicating which of their pieces of scholarship might be having the biggest impact in their respective subject areas.
