Do you know what’s being used in your collection and how often? Do you use that information to determine what to acquire, renew, or weed? Do you have it all in one comprehensive report? Our six development partners do and soon you can too! Libraries can now see what is being used in both their print and electronic collections with Cost per Use (CPU) views, cost by subject, peer analysis comparison, and all Project Counter reports—all in one consolidated report. Libraries have the ability to make better collection decisions with ProQuest’s Intota Assessment.

Currently all six Intota Development partners are using the beta version of Intota Assessment and are benefitting by being able to make data-driven decisions based on accurate collection information.

“We have always carefully managed our budgets to ensure we are delivering the best value to our students and researchers. Now, with Intota Assessment, we are able to make more informed and effective decisions with the combination of comprehensive usage information and cost data in a single report. Looking at subject areas and evaluating our renewal and acquisition decisions using Cost per Use data has been extremely valuable,” said Kathryn Silberger, Senior Librarian, Digital Content Services, Marist College, development partner for Intota.

Intota Assessment provides a holistic view of a library’s collection and enables libraries to make accurate decisions based on real evidence. Intota Assessment was specifically developed to assess today’s collections by providing a comprehensive view of both monographs and serials in both electronic and print format.

A series of educational webinars is scheduled to illustrate the comprehensive benefits of Intota Assessment. Intota Assessment has been tested by our Intota Development Partners. Please contact us for more information or to schedule a personal follow up and demonstration.
