Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 5.50.39 PMThe University of Rhode Island institutional repository, DigitalCommons@URI, passed an impressive milestone recently. People around the world have, in total, downloaded content over one million times from the site (1.3 million as of March 2015, to be precise). DigitalCommons@URI is a digital repository housing a wide range of URI-generated digital material such as faculty and student scholarship, University archival materials, library special collections, special events and projects, and more. The repository continues to grow exponentially in both new content and usage. The 1 million downloads mark demonstrates the importance and relevance of the scholarship happening right here on campus. Bravo, URI!
