Statistical Reports of PURL Referrals Now Available to Libraries

GPO has developed statistical reports of PURL referrals to enable libraries to determine how often documents within the Federal Depository Library Program Electronic Collection are being accessed through library catalogs and Web pages. GPO asked depository librarians to register their OPACs so we could include those referrals with referrals from government document main pages listed in library profiles.

The list of May and June referrals from these depository libraries is available at http://fedbbs.access.gpo.gov/referral.htm. The July and August reports will be available soon, after which the report will be updated monthly.

If you would like to register your institution's OPAC, please visit <http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/tools/ldirect.html>. Registering your domain is completely voluntary, and the information will be used only for providing you with statistical information. Questions or comments may be directed to Kate Villano at <kvillano@gpo.gov>.
