18 This number was generated by the predefined Intota Assessment report. Queen’s migrated to
Intota in August 2014, and have been working with the vendor on issues with SUSHI harvesting
of COUNTER statistics, so this number is known to be inaccurate but is the best information
we currently have access to without reviewing statistics usage from each provider individually.
A review of JR1 statistics for EBSCO, ProQuest, Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley show an 8.4%
increase in full text downloads in 2013–2014 over 2012–2013.
19 This number generated by the predefined Intota Assessment report. DB1 search statistics were
not properly loaded for major providers including EBSCO and ProQuest, resulting in highly
inaccurate results for a DB1 search for all providers for 2013–2014. The report available to us
shows 1,921,345, but when we look at a sampling of providers that did have statistics loaded,
we are seeing small increases or decreases that lead us to believe that our numbers are not
significantly different from those reported in 2012–2013. We will continue to work with our
vendor to have statistics loaded so we can get a more accurate picture of use in 2013–2014.
