Over the past decade the University of North Texas Libraries (UNTL) has
developed a sizable digital library infrastructure for use in carrying out
its core mission to the students, faculty, staff and associated communities
of the university. This repository of content offers countless research
possibilities for end users across the Internet when it is discovered and
used in research, scholarship, entertainment, and lifelong learning. The
characteristics of the repository itself provide insight into the workings
of a modern digital library infrastructure, how it was created, how often
it is updated, or how often it is modified. *In that vein, the authors
created a dataset comprised of information extracted from the UNT
Libraries’ archival repository Coda and analyzed this dataset in order to
demonstrate the value and insights that can be gained from sharing
repository characteristics more broadly. This case study presents the
findings from an analysis of this dataset.*
