Title: The Usage Data Big Picture: A Look at the Collection Analysis Tools and Usage Standards Currently Available, and the Important Questions Still Surrounding Usage Data
Alternative Title: The Quest for Information;
Beyond Full Text Usage
Author: Stamison, Christine ; Mouw, James ; Cohn, Kevin
Abstract: The availability and application of online usage data continues to grow. Usage statistics are now considered a crucial tool in collection analysis. Yet usage data is not the only measure of value and important questions still remain. Do we need to better define usage statistics? Can the data be flawed? Our librarian, vendor and publisher panel will explore these and other questions, and examine the current tools and standards available to help libraries more effectively gather, integrate and analyze usage data.
