Most used repository items for Nov 2010

Posted by gazjjohnson on 2 December, 2010

 

 

Once again we have a rich collection of theses and other full text materials.  What is most interesting is that the top item has almost 400 downloads in a month (or about 100 times the lifetime borrowing rate of a printed thesis!) which is pretty astonishing when all is said and done.

  1.  Ancient Egyptian astronomy: timekeeping and cosmography in the new kingdom (Symons, Sarah) (Thesis, Mathematics)
  2. Female Fandom in an English ‘Sports City’: A sociological study of female spectating and consumption around sport (Pope, Stacey Elizabeth) (Thesis, sociology)
  3. Visions of a new Jerusalem: predictive fiction in the Second World War (Hooley, Tristram) (Thesis, English)
  4. Pedagogical models for podcasts in higher education (Edirisingha, Palitha et al) (Conference paper, BDRA)
  5.  Social inclusion, the museum and the dynamics of sectoral change (Sandell, Richard) (Musum Studies, Article)
  6.  The costs of Activity-Based Management (Armstrong, Peter) (Management, Article)
  7. Teaching presentation skills to undergraduates: Students’ evaluations of a workshop course. (Colman, Andrew M.) (Psychology, Article)
  8.  Shifting (A)Genders: Gender, Disability and the Cyborg in American Women’s Science Fiction (Smith, Susan Ursula Anne) (English, Thesis)
  9. Writing up and presenting qualitative research in family planning and reproductive health care (Pitchforth, Emma et al) (Health Sciences, Article)
  10.  Directing democracy: the case of the John Lewis partnership (Cathcart, Abigail) (Management, Thesis)

Meanwhile there’s been a bit of movement in the top countries accessing the LRA – even if it’s the same 10 as last month.

1 United Kingdom
2 United States
3 Canada
4 Germany
5 India
6 Italy
