3 million medical downloads per month
WHO Library in Geneva releases new features for IRIS, the extensive public health DSpace repository, including statistics and automated recommendations.
Institutional Repository for Information Sharing (IRIS)
is the digital library of WHO’s published material and technical information in full text produced since 1948. Its content is freely accessible and searchable in eight languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian & Spanish).
Scale and Statistics
With over 200.000 archived items, IRIS offers content from WHO governing bodies, publications, technical documents, guidelines and journal articles. Over the past 6 months, the repository served over 19 million downloads. This reported volume already excludes robot traffic from identifiable robots.
IRIS offers the user search term and result recommendations, while the user is actively searching. The search engine does not only suggest additional keywords. It also highlights actual titles, authors, subjects and publishers, matching the search terms entered by the user so far.
When clicked, a preview pane immediately reveals more information about the recommended resource or keyword, enabling fast and efficient content discovery.
