Abstract
  • This paper presents the findings of a survey seeking to discover if libraries are tracking the use of digitized primary source materials available on their websites. The survey was designed to address two research questions: whether libraries track the use of their digitized primary source materials and, for those libraries that do track use, how they analyze and make decisions based on the usage data. Findings indicate that the institutions sampled see the value of collecting usage data and a majority do collect usage data. However, the survey respondents report challenges to analyzing and making decisions based on the data that they collect.
