Local Use Statistics
All vendors of database content provided for Kansans by the State Library can provide you with statistical information about your library's use of the databases upon request, provided that use is identifiable as your library's. Your library may be identified to the vendor by one or more of the following:
- IP address recognition
- Library-specific URL
- Username and password
Database usage via the Kansas Library eCard or the State Library's statewide is not tied to your database accounts. This usage is counted at the state level and combined with library-level use to evaluate the effectiveness of the entire program. Combined data at the statewide level is available to libraries upon request.
Procedures & Contact Information
Below is information for obtaining usage statistics from various databases.
Log on to OCLC Usage Statistics to view and print statistics. You can log on to this module using your WorldCat authorization (9-digit number assigned by OCLC) and your Statistics password. The Statistics password was originally set by OCLC, to be the same as your password for using WorldCat and your Admin password.
If you've changed your login password, your Admin and Statistics passwords may now be different. The State Library can provide you with your authorization and original password by calling 800-432-3919 and asking for Jeff or Rhonda. If your Admin password has been changed in the past and you don't have it, you must email OCLC or call 800-848-5800.
