The Relationship between Searches Performed in Online Databases and the Number of Full-Text Articles Accessed: Measuring the Interaction between Database and E-Journal Collections
Lamothe, Alain R.
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v23 n3 p259-273 2011
The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a quantitative analysis exploring the interaction and relationship between the online database and electronic journal collections at the J. N. Desmarais Library of Laurentian University. A very strong relationship exists between the number of searches and the size of the online database collection where the larger a database collection, the greater its usage. Another very strong relationship was observed between the number of searches and the number of articles downloaded. The more searches that were performed on the database collection, the more the e-journal collection was utilized. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
