Raynor Library’s institutional repository reaches 10 million downloads

Marquette-produced scholarship in Raynor Library’s institutional repository has marked a major milestone with its 10-millionth download. Originating in all countries, the 10 million downloads are a strong indicator of the impact of Marquette research.

Raynor’s repository, e-Publications@Marquette, was established in 2008 to offer Marquette scholars an online platform for showcasing their work on a global stage. The repository now offers access to over 34,500 works created by hundreds of current and former Marquette faculty and students. 

“This milestone offers strong evidence of the quality of Marquette research and of the power that Raynor’s repository has to amplify the impact of Marquette scholarship across the globe,” says Dr. Jeanne Hossenlopp, Marquette’s vice president for research and innovation. “We are grateful for the many ways that the Raynor Library supports our community of scholars.”

The works available from the repository reflect the breadth of knowledge generated at Marquette — from research reports in the health sciences to working papers in economics. Topping the list of most downloaded works are:

  • “Identity Development Throughout the Lifetime: An Examination of Eriksonian Theory,” an article by Justin T. Sokol, graduate student, psychology
  • “Effect of Parenting Styles on Children’s Emotional and Behavioral Problems Among Different Ethnicities of Muslim Children in the U.S.” a dissertation by Noor A. Rosli, graduate student, Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology
  • “Frankenstein, Feminism, and Literary Theory,” a book chapter by Diane Hoeveler, Professor Emerita, English
