Libraries spend millions of pounds on electronic journals each year, but gathering statistics about their use hasn't always been easy. Diminishing budgets must demonstrate value for money, and reliable data is key. Comparative usage statistics help evaluate the impact of e-resources and inform future purchasing decisions.
