This paper presents the findings of a detailed data collection and analysis process on a subset of a digital library and archive's web analytics data. The study focused on three research areas: user demographics across twelve collections; usage of value-added content across collections; and use as a function of size of collections. The paper presents findings, includes suggestions for improving the collections, and includes guidelines for how the digital library and archive's staff can monitor web analytics data in the future.
