Using Tipasa's Patron Request Form to Gather Statistics in a Library that Serves Multiple Institutions
The AUC Robert W. Woodruff library serves 4 institutions (Spelman College, Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University and the Interdenominational Theological Center) and the library has to provide statistics on usage specific to each institution's student, faculty and staff population.
This session will show how to use the patron status and department fields to gather patron status relevant to our institution. The session will also show how these patron statistics can be accessed through WorldShare Analytics in the event that statistics are needed before OCLC Usage Statistics become available.

During this time period, the university established several new graduate programs, and the library has become dependent upon document delivery services in particular for fields that were not traditionally covered by the library’s collections to meet the needs of these students. Previous studies at Bradley University have shown that the graduate students request the most articles per capita, and the rise in graduate student population has correlated with a rise in requests for articles through document delivery services. The question is, if this increase is happening at other universities the same size and student body type as Bradley University, and is the increase co
