Data Analysis

Gale usage went down due to a difference in the way using the database was taught.  In the past, it was taught to the Careers classes out of context from a class assignment.  This year, I taught how to use the databases in the context of an actual research assignment.  This enabled the students to understand and apply the use of the databases; however, since a generic search was not used, statistics went down.

In 2002-2003, circulation increased 4% over the previous year.  In 2003-2004, circulation increased 13% over the previous year.
