500+ Records in NIO's Institutional Repository
500+ Records in NIO's Institutional Repository The Institutional Repository of the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) Goa, India - http://drs.nio.org - crossed 500 full-text records (Journal articles, conference articles, book chapters, theses, etc) on 1 December 2006 since it's launching during end March 2006. Within a short span of eight months, there are over 35,000 downloads from over 100 countries. How was this achieved?: - 124 articles published by NIO's authors during the year 2006 are up. Thanks to the authors who resourced these. Many of them have learnt the art of self-archiving (uploading on DRS) and few sought help of the library. - Other articles range for the period 2000-2005. NIO library obtained permissions from Indian publishers to upload these. These have been uploaded after scan and OCR. This has helped increasing the size of DRS. - Very little portion of this does include grey literature (theses, reports, etc.). - DRS is one among the very few institutional repositories in the field of Marine Sciences all over the world. The contents of DRS is harvested by: OAIster (Global harvester for archives), Google Scholar, Avano (Marine and aquatic science harvester from France) and CASSIR (Indian archives harvester at IISc, India).
