On 12 May 2019 Scholars' Mine reached an important milestone: three million downloads. Since December 2014, when Scholars’ Mine went live following a major refresh of a system first created in 2007, researchers and other users have downloaded material including theses and dissertations, faculty publications, conference proceedings and more.
Two popular downloads highlight the variety of information in Scholars' Mine:
1. Case Study and Analysis of a Low Cost Housing Project in an Urban Area in India from the 1970 International Symposium on Low Cost Housing Problems Related to Urban Renewal and Development, held in Rolla, Missouri. This paper has been downloaded over 8,000 times since it was posted in August 2017, and
2. An Analysis of the Environmental Impact of Electric Vehicles, published in Peer to Peer, a Missouri S&T undergraduate journal. Also posted in August 2017, this article has been downloaded more than 6,600 times.
Scholars' Mine also provides a permanent online presence for the INSPIRE-University Transportation Center, enabling the sharing of INSPIRE faculty research, newsletters, webinars and progress and performance reports in an open access environment.
Another important aspect of Scholars’ Mine is the SelectedWorks Author Gallery which showcases S&T’s faculty and their research.
