1 E-Metrics: Which Ones?

2 Outline comparison of international e-metrics projects survey results from NZ and Australia on e-metrics practice suggestions for metrics to be included in the CAUL & CONZUL statistics

3 Increasing $ spent on e-resources But no national statistics reflecting use

4 Why collect E-metrics? Comparing against other similar libraries Demonstrating the librarys contribution to learning/ research outcomes To inform internal management decisions To assess the cost-effectiveness of alternative products and services.

5 E-Metrics Projects ARL COUNTER Equinox (European Union) NISO – draft revised Z39.7 standard on library statistics ISO Library Statistics standard under development … and others

No. of documents and entries (records) viewed per session for each electronic library service 5. Cost per session for each electronic library service 6. Cost per document or entry (record) viewed for each electronic library service 7. % of information requests submitted electronically

7 8. Library computer workstation use rate 9. No. of library computer workstation hours available per member of the population to be served 10.
