BURO, our institutional repository, shares its content with IRUS-UK, a national aggregation service, which contains details of all content downloaded from UK participating Institutional Repositories. The aim is to provide consistent and comprehensive statistics, presenting opportunities for benchmarking at a national level. This also allows us to see where BURO sits amongst our participating peers in Jisc Band 5b.
