Created by the Collections Strategies & Services (CSS) Division at the University of Dayton's Roesch Library, this E-Resources Usage Dashboard project aims to provide an in-depth summary of how UD's electronic holdings are being used by faculty, students, and staff. Through this summary we hope to inform the services delivered by library faculty and staff in the areas of reference, research consultations, and library instruction sessions. Simply put, knowing how our collections are being used helps us to better understand the needs and preferences of our patrons. Any questions can be directed to Simon Robins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
*The above visual does not include every database/platform. Two factors determined inclusion: overall usage and COUNTER compliance. If a platform was not heavily used (for example, if it received less than 100 searches or 100 downloads in a FY, then it was not included. Likewise, if the usage was low and the platform does use COUNTER-compliant statistics, then it was also excluded). Some platforms with high search counts but are not COUNTER-compliant were still included.
