IRUS-ANZ has moved. From January 2022, new monthly statistics will only be added to the IRUS R5 service. This site is archived. All statistics up to December 2021 will remain available on this site.

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.

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
