Collection Usage Increases Significantly from 2007 to 2012

HEB recently put together an overview of usage of our resource in conjunction with collection growth and subscriber count over the last few years. The resulting chart tracks annual totals for page hits, title count, and institutional subscribers to HEB for 2007 through 2012.

The chart shows that the number of total annual hits has increased significantly more steeply than both the number of subscribers and titles, which seems to indicate that interest and usage among existing subscribers have continued to grow over time, and that our subscribers may be getting more out of the resource the longer they have access. HEB will release an additional 330 titles this summer, which we hope will add to the overall usefulness of the collection.
