Database stats for Jan-Jun 2012

ChartEver wonder how much your patrons are using online resources like Ancestry Library, EBSCO, OverDrive, and the rest? 

SCLS gathers some usage statistics by way of our authentication scripts. These database statistics aren't perfect (they're really more of a "ballpark" count), but they can give your library an idea of which resources your patrons use and which may need more training and promotion. OverDrive statistics come straight from OverDrive and should provide an accurate count of checkouts.

Both database and OverDrive statistics are found on the SCLS website on the "Reference Database Statistics by Library" page. Database statistics by library are on the left, and OverDrive statistics by library are on the right.

If you have any questions, need custom reports (database or OverDrive), or would like reports in a different file format, please contact Kerri.

Interested in running your own OverDrive stats for your library? Sign up for an OverDrive support account and you'll have access to OverDrive reports and also the OverDrive support form.
