For the last few years, libraries have been acquiring discovery tools in effort to make it easier for users to find their licensed and unique local content. Vendors have touted the discovery tools' ability to speed up the research process and increase usage of the collection. However, has the entire collection seen an increase in usage? Are resources not indexed by discovery tools still being used? How will this affect decisions to cancel, keep, or acquire resources? This poster session will share the usage analysis and collection management issues that Florida State University faces after implementation of a discovery tool.
