It is not a novelty that all libraries want to obtain as many users as possible and for this the hybrid library is going to virtual places. But if we really want to demonstrate this user increase we need statistical information as a guarantee. And also, every librarian needs the statistical data to check that the management results will attain our objectives.There are a lot of reasons to justifying the importance of having true and complete statistical data about our library. On the whole it justifies its existence, and in the specific case of virtual libraries, the high budgets. However probably the most important aid for librarians is to know the user satisfaction and identify their training needs. In 2008, for all this above-mentioned reasons the librarians of the Virtual Library of Health Sciences of the Balearic Islands began to study the statistical data about contracted electronic resources. We were looking at what they could show us and we asked ourselves if the statistical data of the electronic resources were really useful for virtual library management, and in most cases we immediately noticed that they were not. So to find a solution we proposed to make a detailed analysis of this management area. In this study we have not analyzed the situation of the technical management of statistical reports of databases because it would be too extensive. But we have studied this topic and we do believe that there are very few solutions on the market to resolve. We wish to invite you to create more data retrieval services because this is the only way to regularly achieve a statistical data library
