A Hybrid Model for Managing Standard Usage Data: Principles for e-Resource Statistics Workflows

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The migration from print to electronic collections has created a new environment for gathering and assessing collection use: reliance on standards-based, vendor-supplied usage data. Electronic resource management (ERM) software and systems designed to accommodate this data have transformed homegrown methods for counting usage and collating reports into hybrid methods using both locally-developed and third-party tools (such as electronic resource management systems and assessment products). This article will outline principles for creating a hybrid workflow for electronic resource usage statistics, using the experience of Bowling Green State University's Jerome Library as a case study.
