Measuring usage and usability of online databases at Hartnell College: An evaluation of selected electronic resources (California).


The purpose of this study was to collect and examine statistical and survey data in an effort to determine whether three electronic resources made available by the Hartnell College library are actually being used by the target population for whom they were acquired. The second goal was to significantly advance understanding of how selected online database products collect and report usage statistics, how usable students find existing electronic resources, and whether usage levels justify the costs of renewing online resource subscriptions.
