21 Lending numbers dropped from FY11 to FY12 due to a transition from an old URSA platform for
PALCI/E-Z Borrow to a new Relais platform. This transition shuffled the existing logarithm and resulted
in Rutgers receiving fewer E-Z Borrow lending requests. From FY 2012 to FY 2013, this logarithm was
adjusted properly and resulted in more E-Z Borrow lending requests. Additionally, from FY11 to FY12,
there was a downward trend in the RAPID article lending because of an improper setting in the RAPID
system. From FY12 to FY13, this setting was readjusted and has resulted in more article lending requests
in the RAPID system.
All figures are as of 04/30/2013.
