Assessment of Key Statistics:

 

Information literacy/library orientation sessions: Library orientation and Information Literacy instruction continued to hold a prominent place in library service during 2011-2012. A total of 211 sessions were held through April 2012. Several more sessions will be held during May and June 2012 for GPS.   All were conducted in direct association with teaching faculty and continue to be enhanced through the further collaboration of Information Literacy with both the Commons Steering Committee and the QEP-IT. As a result of library outreach beyond the class sessions,  librarians  also met  and worked with students individually  during scheduled research appointments further enhancing student learning.

 

Circulation: In a further demonstration of the growing popularity and acceptance of the format, many more  electronic books (14,284) were circulated than print (1,998). In addition, it should be added, partially as a result of additional pedagogical requirements and partially as a result of enhanced vendor reporting methods, overall e-book use was seen to have grown by 90.6%.

 

Interlibrary loans: In 2011-2012, 209 items were traded between campuses, mailed, or obtained from other libraries. This figures represents a 49-book increase over 1011. 

 

Electronic visits: Electronic visits to the Garland Library during the 2011 reporting period to date have again passed the half million mark: 700,480. This figure largely explains the decline in print book and journal circulation and follows the general national format trend.
