Building a Foundation for Collection Management Decisions. DePope, L. A.; Kemp, R.; Hemhauser, M.; and Reid, D. Serials Librarian, 66:220–226, 2014.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
Salisbury University and the University of Maryland, College Park, both undertook projects to evaluate the effectiveness of EBSCO Information Service's EBSCONET® Usage Consolidation product and the usefulness of the extracted data for collection development decisions. The goals of implementation were to centralize the collection and analysis of e-resource usage data and to allow collection management librarians easy access to usage and cost per use data to aid in their decision making. The presenters discussed how staff at each institution populated Usage Consolidation and presented usage reports to collection managers; how collection managers responded to the data; and how they used the data to inform collection management decisions.
