This chapter is a case study that details the shifting priorities of the Texas Tech Digital Resources Library from tool centric to focusing on how easily our metadata could be indexed by search engines. This shifting priority followed the 80/20 rule, that we stared focusing on the 20% of our work that produced 80% of the results, meaning that our digital collections are well used with minimal effort on our part. This chapter details the decision process with website usage statistics. This story will help digital libraries rethink their systems and where they invest resources.<br><br>This was editor reviewed.
