JUSP Utilising usage data to assist in decision-making

Angela Conyers

Evidence Base, Research & Evaluation

Birmingham City University


2012

Some memorable events


2013

International Year of Statistics


“Statistics can be used to help make well-informed choices, take sound decisions and understand the society and the world we live in”

Chris Skinner, Professor of Statistics, LSE


Why count?

Usage statistics provide essential evidence:

to show how e-resources are being used

to look at trends over time

to inform renewal/cancellation decisions

to demonstrate value for money


What does it all mean?

How to use the figures to analyse usage and show value for money

Background and aims

Supports UK academic libraries by providing a single point of access to e-journal usage data

Assists management of e-journals collections, evaluation and decision-making

Provides statistics to ensure the best deals for the academic community

What data are we collecting?

COUNTER usage reports

How do we collect data?

Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI)

M2M way of gathering statistics

Replaces the user-mediated collection of usage reports

SUSHI server to gather data from JUSP

Collecting the evidence

  • Have you got all the information you need?

  • Is it complete?

  • Is it too much?


Have you got all the information you need?JR1 and JR1A reports


Is it complete?Adding intermediaries


Is it too much?Subtracting the backfiles


Usage data for decision- making

Some JUSP reports:

  • SCONUL returns

  • Trends over time

  • Titles with the highest use

  • Titles and deals


SCONUL returns


Trends over time


Titles with the highest use-all publishers


What’s the deal?

  • What titles are in the deal?

  • Comparing deals

  • Looking at deals over time

  • Usage of titles and deals


Viewing usage of titles and deals


Usage ranges showing nil use


Core or subscribed titles

Mark these up in JUSP:

  • To view value of a deal:

    How much use is being made of the core titles?

    How much use is being made of the unsubscribed titles included in the deal?

  • To review usage with schools/faculties

  • To consider possible cancellations/substitutions where these are allowed.


Titles with the highest usewhich are core titles?


Adding cost or subject data to JUSP reports

Most JUSP reports can be downloaded:

  • Add costs to the ‘annual summary of publisher use’ to compare costs per download

  • Core titles cost more: sort reports by ‘core’ and ‘non-core’ titles to compare costs of each

  • Add your subject categories or fund codes to core or subscribed titles to report on usage to schools/faculties


Community engagement

Community resource responding to what people want

Working closely with libraries to understand how JUSP is being used and how it can help decision-making

Information sharing and training events

Developing new reports and features from user feedback

Quick response rates encourage active user participation
