Abstract

Presented the methodology and systems used at the University of St. Thomas libraires to analyze usage statistics for both print and electronic resources in order to support collection development decisions. We discuss how the data are collected, how cost-per-use is calculated and how standards development may facilitate these processes in the future. Roles of subject liaisons and Collection Development Committee in the decision making process are examined.
