A librarian's view of usage metrics: through a glass darkly?

Abstract

A research project at Newcastle University Library has been benchmarking electronic resources using COUNTER-compliant usage data. As the virtual academic library becomes more widely established, new tools will be needed to determine the cost benefit of library resources and services. In this context, traditional quan ti tative data will no longer suffice. E-metrics have the potential to provide managers with more robust, empirical evidence to inform strategic planning and decision making.
