It was just one year ago that the law librarians met with you over a faculty luncheon to discuss Scholarship@Cornell Law, the e-repository that contains articles written by our law faculty, students, and visitors.  In the past year, there have been 84,560 full text downloads from the repository, a number that may surprise you.  The number that surprises and delights me is this one: 


243,910 full text downloads since the repository started in 2003!


These downloads often are by researchers who do not rely on SSRN for articles.  Our repository is discoverable by search engines like Google and Bing, so lawyers, scholars, students, and others around the world looking for legal information will find your articles in this repository. 


If you ever find that we lack one of your recent articles in the repository, please let me know so we can be sure to add it.  You and I both will enjoy seeing those numbers rise and having Cornell Law School’s scholarship spread broadly.
