Date range: 9/16/2011-5/18/2012

ldi pilot results
LDI Pilot: Results
  • Across all discovery services, the link on the Zero Search Results page was the most used (accounting for 44% of links back to discovery service)
  • Link to discovery service from the article view was the least used
  • Discovery services unable to provide statistics on user behavior once they navigate from JSTOR to the discovery service (though OCLC may be able to going forward)
  • Feedback from partners:
    • No negative feedback on discovery service integration from students/faculty
    • Sense that usage of discovery link was lower than expected; will establish benchmarks going forward
    • Test different/more prominent display of links
    • Next steps: extend pilot to additional institutions
