The Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL) is a free online registry of codes used in research  it is indexed by ADS and Web of Science and has over 1300 code entries. Its entries are increasingly used to cite software  citations have been at least doubling each year since 2012, and every major astronomy journal accepts citations to the ASCL. Codes in the resource cover all aspects of astrophysics research and many programming languages are represented. In the past year, the ASCL has added dashboards for users and administrators, started minting DOIs for codes it houses, and added metadata fields requested by users. This presentation covers the ASCL’s growth in the past year and the opportunities afforded to it as one of the few domain libraries for science research codes, and will solicit ideas for new features.
