Procedures - Monthly Statistics Report

Statistics are kept by staff members at the front desk and at their own desks (for phone and email requests).   A guide to reference questions vs. directional questions is kept in the binder at the front desk. 

At the end of each month, statistics are entered into a spreadsheet for the fiscal year.  Statistics are kept for reference & directional questions and ILL; photocopy order requests; class usage; and for our visitors (from the sign-in sheet).

*Forms & worksheets for keeping statistics are found at:


At the end of the month:
