Corralling Journal Use Statistics For Easy Reporting

  1. 1. How we Round Them Up at UW-La Crosse Jen Holman Periodicals Librarian Murphy Library/UW-La Crosse [email_address] WAAL Conference Green Lake, WI April 22, 2009
  2. 2. Journal subscriptions account for nearly 60% of our materials budget Yet, LibQual shows us our faculty members are not satisfied with our Print and/or electronic journal collections
  3. 3. Each summer, statistics pulled from Voyager (ILS) and hand-keyed into a series of 35 subject spreadsheets, one for each academic department
  4. 4. <ul><li>Difficult to display use by format (how should we present electronic use data?) </li></ul><ul><li>Data no longer fit the screen nicely </li></ul><ul><li>Student help budget slashed (limited staff time for manual data entry) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Many vendors offer Journal Report 1: Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests by Month and Journal Consistent format from vendors enables data comparison
  6. 6. Allows for customizable “on-the-fly” reporting Connect ILS data (bibliographic) and vendor data (use)
  7. 7. Integrity of ISSNs between vendors and our catalog records is the biggest hurdle
  8. 8. We utilize local subject headings (690 field) for department information. Also use this to track our foreign subscriptions, as they are generally expensive
  9. 9. Chemistry subscriptions in FY08 that cost more than $500 with their print use, electronic use through the ACS, and SFX “clickthroughs” displayed.
  10. 11. Utilize SUSHI to automate the downloading of COUNTER reports The Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) Protocol standard (ANSI/NISO Z39.93) defines an automated request and response model for the harvesting of electronic resource usage data utilizing a Web services framework. It is intended to replace the time-consuming user-mediated collection of usage data reports. http://www.niso.org/workrooms/sushi
