Policies and Procedures

Wayne G. Basler Library Policy and Procedures


Circulation statistics are maintained to monitor usage of library materials and enable the staff to note opportunities for changes in services, collection development, and allocation of resources. Statistics are generated partly by the Library Management System and partly by the library staff. Monthly totals are submitted to the Dean of the Library at the end of each month.

The monthly statistics report includes such items as circulation by borrower class, circulation by material, scheduled class usage, online database usage, equipment usage, interlibrary loans, library traffic, reference questions answered, loans to off-campus Northeast State sites, etc.
