Health sciences circulation data

Health Sciences Circulation Data

  • Looks at HSL circulation activity

  • Is only one measure of collection usage

  • Presents data both HSL specific and system-wide

  • Circulation Desk uses several happening locations: Health Sciences Circ, Health Sciences Reserves, Butler, and BorrowDirect

  • HSL Library data is available from the implementation of Voyager, July 2003

  • No usable data for non-circulating collections

Hsl happening location

HSL Happening Location

  • Data from HSL Happening Location only (includes Reserves)

  • Five primary types of circulation activity: charge, discharge, renewal, recall and hold

  • Renewals and recalls are done in the OPAC happening location, dynamically by patrons themselves

  • Circulation data for special collections pertains only to exceptions:

    • Interlibrary loan

    • Exhibits

    • Scanning

Observations

Observations

  • Total volume of charges down overall since FY04

  • 27.9% decline from FY04 to FY11

  • Compare to 27.4% declinesystem-wide

  • Charge volume fluctuated FY04-FY08

  • Since FY09 the total volume has consistently risen by a small margin

Hsl circulation by patron group

HSL Circulation by Patron Group

  • All status patron/pseudopatron charges are excluded

  • Line charts includes data from FY04-FY12

  • Line charts include FY and monthly activity

  • Pie chart break down data for FY12 only

  • Bar chart compares patron group charges for each fiscal year

Observations1

Observations

  • Patron Group definitions have changed:

    • Adjunct faculty : in 2008 grad students were given primary group OFF instead of GRD

  • Almost 90% of all charges are to graduate students and faculty in FY12

  • Graduate and undergraduate charges have been declining

  • Peak borrowing period is Fall semester

  • Faculty activity is consistent throughout the calendar year

Circ activity by collection

Circ Activity by Collection

  • Data for major collections in the HSL Happening Location in FY12 only

  • 44.5% are for reserves collections

  • “HSL Other” includes

    • hsl,mcrs

    • hsl,over

    • hsl,medi

    • And others

  • Data unavailable for non-circulating collections

Clio location activity with patron group detail

CLIO Location Activity with Patron Group Detail

  • Detailed Patron Group info for

    • HSL Offsite(off,hsl)

    • Reserves (hsl,res)

    • General stacks (hsl,stx)

    • To Morningside Campus (hsl2xxx)

  • Noticeable decline is stacks activity when renovation began

System wide circulation data

System-wide Circulation Data

  • System-wide circulation statistics are available for both on campus and offsite collections

  • Circulation data are accessible to all staff

  • Offsite collections can be identified by CLIO location format off,xxx.

  • System-wide data is available from July 2003, the date of Ex Libris Voyager implementation

On campus vs offsite charges

On Campus vs. Offsite Charges

  • Comparison of on campus and offsite collection charges by volume

  • On campus charge volume declined by 27.4%between FY04 and FY12

  • On campus charges have declined every year since FY04

  • Offsite charge volume increased 121.3%between FY04 and FY12

  • N.B. On campus collection size declines each year; offsite collections grow each year

On campus vs offsite charges1

On Campus vs. Offsite Charges

  • Monthly charges of both on campus and offsite collections are in phase with the academic calendar

  • Peaks in the middle of Fall and Spring terms

  • The pattern of offsite charges is more apparent when viewed alone

Charges vs renewals

Charges vs. Renewals

  • Chart compares total volume of charges to renewals for Offsite collections

  • Graduate students and Faculty request more Offsite collections than Undergraduates

  • Graduate students and especially Faculty have higher renewal/charge ratios

  • Over time, these two patron groups tend to renew more than charge

  • CUL may expect to see steady or decreasing request volume as a result
