The Use of Consortially Purchased Electronic Journals by the CBUC (2000-2003) (10 Jun 2004)
The greatest rate of use corresponds to the Wiley journals, at 39.05 articles downloaded per title per month, and the smallest was that of the MCB package, at 6.52 articles per title per month. One must take into account, however, that the time period and the volume of the retrospective collections may affect the rate of use, so until the use of each title can be considered in relation to the number of articles that it offers, the conclusions on this point will not be definitive. Nevertheless, the rates of use are fairly representative if they are assessed package by package, due to the relative stability observed in the quarterly evolution of the number of articles downloaded in each package.
