Abstract: CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory (NML) Jamshedpur established its institutional repository – Eprints@NML in September 2009. The study looks at the use of the repository based on the repository log data. It was found that NML Scientists received 1847 enquires for their articles/projects until September, 2012 which motivated them further to enrich the repository by uploading their research outputs. As a result, by the end of September 2012 there were 5071 uploads as against 3972 documents uploaded in December 2011. A total of 27, 40,343 hits were received from different countries during August 2011 to September 2012 and a cumulative total of over 4.86 million hits since inception. The maximum number of hits was 0.27 million in August, 2012. More than 75% of NML scientists/researchers have registered with Eprints@NML for uploading their documents. The top twenty countries accessing the repository were United States, India, Russia, China, UK, Hong Kong, Germany, Netherlands, Iran, Japan, France, Italy, Canada, Korea, Ukraine, Brazil, Poland, Australia, Turkey and South Africa.
