This is in answer to Rick Anderson’s recent article in LJ — “Print on the Margins: Circulation Trends in Major Research Libraries”. Rick seems to be addressing the circulation of print resources and points to the the changes in user behavior. We at ATG have been asking our subscribers if they count e-use statistics with their print circulation figures. The majority of libraries do not. So, for me, the main question is – why aren’t we counting e-use statistics the same way that we are counting print book check out statistics?
