We’ve added many new e-resources over the past year. The current objectives are to ensure that faculty awareness of these resources is high and to monitor and evaluate usage before our next renewal.
Total expenditures for library resources increased by 28% since 2016. Expenditures for e-resources are up 42%.
Print periodical subscriptions decreased as more titles were purchased in digital formats. Book volume counts hold steady for now but will begin a slow downward trend as more outdated volumes are removed than new volumes are acquired.
Online article downloads fell from the previous year but remain higher than 2011. The cause for this decline is unknown at this time. We’ll learn if this is a trend once we tally the counts for the past year. Circulation of physical items (books and equipment) continued a downward trend and are below the 2011 level. Despite the declining numbers Leeward still circulates more items than any other UHCC campus. In 2015, 46% of total circulation volume for Oahu UHCC campuses happened at Leeward.
of thud and thump and thunder
man’s relevance to books
continues to declare.
Books are meat and medicine
and flame and flight and flower,
steel, stitch, and cloud and clout,
and drumbeats in the air.
