observations
Observations
  • Total volume of charges has declined by 58.4% (compared to 27.4% decline system-wide)
  • Volume of discharge predictably mirrors charges
  • Decline due in part to large volume of transfer to ReCAP
  • Noticeably sharper decline for graduates students than other patron groups

business circulation by patron group
Business Circulation by Patron Group
  • Undergraduates and graduates use Reserves more heavily
  • Faculty focused on main collection
  • Patron Group definitions have changed:
    • Adjunct faculty, in 2008 grad students were given primary group OFF instead of GRD
  • Pie charts break down data for FY13 only

  • Greater proportion of charges are going to undergraduates
