Comments: 

 

Information literacy/library use sessions: Library use and Information Literacy instruction continued to hold a prominent place in library service during 0910. A total of 256 sessions were held through April 2010. Several more sessions will be held during May and June 2010 for GPS.   All were conducted in direct association with teaching faculty and continue to be enhanced through the further collaboration of Information Literacy with both the Commons Steering Committee and the QEP-IT. As a result of library outreach beyond the class sessions,  librarians  also met  and worked with students individually  during scheduled research appointments further enhancing student learning.

 

Circulation: In a further demonstration of the growing popularity and acceptance of the format, more  electronic books (4,079) were circulated than print (3,464).

 

Interlibrary loans: In 0910, 148 items were traded between campuses, mailed, or obtained from other libraries. This figures represents a decline from 0809 can be directly attributed to the increasing availability of relevant e-book and other electronic titles and a drop in demand from three regular faculty ILL borrowers (one resigned and one emeritus).  

 

Physical use: A total of 56,534 people physically employed the two non-museum libraries of Tusculum College this school year.  Greeneville facility traffic increased by 1,996 (4.9%).

 

Electronic visits: Electronic visits to the Garland Library during the 0910 reporting period to date again passed the half million mark and approached the million mark milestone: 933,793. This figure, which will pass the million mark milestone by June 30, represents a 45% usage increase over the same 0809 period. It also largely explains the decline in print circulation and interlibrary loan, which is a general national format trend.
