Welcome to IRUS-ANZ

IRUS-ANZ (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics Australia and New Zealand) provides COUNTER-conformant usage statistics for all content downloaded from participating ANZ institutional repositories (IRs). IRUS-ANZ is a Jisc service, supported in Australia and New Zealand by CAVAL. It is based on Jisc’s IRUS-UK service, which has been in place in the UK since July 2012.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've put together a table showing the usage of coronavirus related content in IRUS, featuring items in IRUS-UK, CORE, IRUS-ANZ and IRUS-US, which can be viewed at https://irus.jisc.ac.uk/coronavirus.

The service consolidates COUNTER-conformant statistics providing opportunities to demonstrate the value and impact of IRs:

  • facilitating comparable, standards-based measurements
  • providing an evidence base for repositories to develop policies and initiatives to help support their objectives
  • providing consistent and comprehensive statistics, presenting opportunities for benchmarking at a national level
  • developing a user community that will ensure that the service is responsive to user requirements

If you are a CAUL or CONZUL repository wishing to participate in IRUS-ANZ, please contact IRUS@caval.edu.au
