Building an Institutional Repository served as a vehicle for promoting the institution and individual research activities for a high global visibility of their published or unpublished research output. CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory (NML) Jamshedpur established its Institutional repository – Eprints@NML in September 2009, providing its researchers with an easy solution for Open access. This has allowed researchers to promote their research and to draw an attention from among their counterparts globally. In the last two years, CSIR-NML’s repository has attained high global visibility and also popularity. By the end of this financial year of operation, interest in their work has increased phenomenally and NML institutional repository has achieved 25 fold increase in traffic, with over 0.3 million hits/month and a cumulative total of over 5.78 million hits since inception. The number of researchers from our country as well as several other countries accessing CSIR-NML repository has revealed a remarkable increase over the past three years and is beneficial to benefitting engineers, scientists, researchers, institutions, entrepreneurs, business houses and the society as a whole.
