2.2 | Subscription content (e.g., Ebsco databases, Freegal, Learning Express, Lynda) usage reports are reviewed at least quarterly
Monitoring usage reports of library subscription content can help libraries understand how patrons use (or don't use) the content the library provides through paid subscriptions. Quarterly monitoring of this use can help spot trends that may lead to increasing availability of certain types of content, choosing not to renew unused content, or promoting awareness about the availability of content that is not in wide use. Less frequent monitoring may not provide sufficiently detailed information to make decisions about offering subscription content and related services.
FOR THE ASSESSMENT
Answer Yes if you monitor your subscription content usage every quarter or more frequently.
Answer No, but plan to in the next year if you monitor subscription content use less frequently than each quarter, or you don't currently monitor it at all, but you plan to begin to do so in the next year.
Answer No, would like to but cannot at this time if you would like to monitor your subscription content use at least every quarter, perhaps because you don't offer subscription content through your library or do not have access to reports about its use.
Answer No, we have no plans to do so at this time if you do not monitor your subscription content use or monitor it less frequently than quarterly and do not intend to monitor more frequently.
