*Librarians and repository managers are increasingly asked to take a
data-centric approach approach for content management and impact
measurement.* Usage statistics, such as page views and downloads, have been
widely used for demonstrating repository impacts. However, usage statistics
restricts your capacity of identifying user trends and patterns such as how
many visits are contributed by crawlers, originated from a mobile device,
or redirected by a search engine. Knowing these figures will help

metrics and dimensions along with hand-on activities of how to use Google
Analytics on library data from institutional repository.
