How busy is the Library catalogue?

February was a busier month for OPAC than January was, again with a day or more than out because of the power-cut which caused some downtime. The OPAC figures are harder to use to get a feel for how the service is operating. It might be interesting to compare the 7245 requests for the '/TalisPrism/' script which OPAC uses to record reservation requests with the total number of reservations placed that month. There are other questions that we might like answering, like how many OPAC pages are viewed because they are mentioned in Reading Lists Online.
March is usually a busy month before April begins a slowdown in OPAC use which seems to last until the new academic year begins.

OPAC usage statistics.
