Use of Usage Data

When managing electronic resources, we work in constructive ways to gather and record data that reflects our patrons’ interests and patterns of use. This session will explore how we can interpret this usage data to support collection development decisions.  We will ask the questions, “How do we effectively use the information that we have gathered about usage?" What are the possible outcomes of measuring use?  Some of these outcomes are relatively straightforward, such as supporting renewal decisions. Others lead in new directions, such as identifying subjects for further growth and development in our collections. The context for this presentation is a medium sized academic library that supports a curriculum with a broad range of subject areas.
