We, at the Medical College of
Georgia, are investigating software
that will collect usage statistics
of our in-house and CDROM databases.
 
I would like to pose the question
below to others that are involved
with library statistics gathering.
 
What system(s) do you plan to use
for statistics gathering?  We are
in the midst of integrating several
different platforms into one, single
menu.  At some point in the login
procedure, we must prompt the user
to answer some general stat questions
(ie. who are they, why they're
searching, etc.).
 
There seems to be plenty of metering
software packages out there
(ie. AppMeter, SaberMeter), but no
statistics gathering packages.
Are we to assume that statistics
gathering is so specific to each
institution that an in-house developed
stat package is the only altenative?
 
Please respond to me directly.
Thanks,
Alan Pridemore
