About IRUS-UK
IRUS–UK is a standards-based statistics aggregation service for repositories in the UK, enabling them to share and compare usage statistics using the COUNTER standard.
The service collects, then processes usage data from repositories and current research information systems (CRIS), and consolidates that data into COUNTER-compliant statistics by following the COUNTER code of practice.
This enables UK repositories to provide consistent, comparable and trustworthy usage data as well as benchmarking usage of their repository at a national level.
