Usage Statistics for E-Resources - Reporting Procedure Notes

Please forward all correspondence and data files regarding e-resource use statistics to Christine Turner.

  • Working files for this project are located at: S (coll_management):\Acquisitions\ER Usage Statistics.
  • Background for the e-resource use data collection project is described in Usage Statistics for Electronic Resource - A Rationale for Collecting Data, UMass Amherst Libraries which provides an overview of the project, reasons why we collect data, and what data we collect.
  • Data files downloaded from vendor/host sites are stored in sub-folders by fiscal year (July 1 – June 30), e.g. “2005-2006 Vendor Stats”, “2006-2007 Vendor Stats”.
  • Within the “dbs-annuals” subfolder, “DBUse_FY200x.xls” has two worksheets: “Data” by title for monthly sessions, searches, turnaways, etc.; and “Procedures” for the means and formats for obtaining the data. Data for fiscal years 2006-2011 is posted to LibWire under Divisions & Departments/Acquisitions/E-Resource Use Statistics.
  • E-book usage data is not systematically collected at this time. However, procedures for obtaining the data are available below.
  • E-Journal usage data collection procedures are available below. COUNTER JR1 reports are either manually or automatically loaded via SUSHI to USTAT (see login information below).
