Three Million Downloads: ScholarWorks Reaches Another Milestone

WMU Libraries announce that a major milestone has been reached for ScholarWorks at WMU. The institutional repository houses over 20,000 items of Western's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. It is a significant milestone with over 1,250,000 downloads just in the past year.

The Libraries' team continues to increase the number items in the repository. Included are copies of published articles and conference papers, presentations, senior theses, WMU journals, and performances, among others. The accessibility of these materials worldwide is vital to the main pillars of WMU's mission: learner-centered, discovery-driven, and globally-engaged.

The repository has more information about the contents, search functions and how to submit items. On the home page is real time information about the download of the moment and what country a person is accessing it from:
