Where does it come from? Generating and collecting online usage data: an update

Author:

Tansy Matthews

Abstract

The proliferation of standards and methods for collecting and reporting usage statistics for online resources has begun to turn any discussion of such into a type of alphabet soup. Additionally, the ever developing relationships between libraries, vendors, and now to a much greater extent, developers and sundry other ‘IT people’ has further confused the conversation surrounding the effective use and reporting of these statistics. This article will attempt to provide a ‘big picture’ view of the generation and collection of usage data from both technical and practical perspectives.
