Paul Royster

Date of this Version



Taking advantage of a 29th day this leap year, the UNL Digital Commons supplied 580,677 downloads for the month. The 250 most frequently downloaded are listed below.

Overall, the repository supplied 123,646 downloads of those 250 items, plus another 457,031 downloads of 46,975 other items not among the top 250. There were 23,017 items that were not downloaded during the month. This represents an average of 8.3 downloads per available item; and 67.5% of available items were downloaded at least once.

February's total was an increase of 15.9% over February 2015 and a 26.2% increase over February 2014 (helped in both cases by the extra day, which added 3.6% more time).

The 34 million downloads "milestone" was surpassed this month.
