Hello all,


As many of you know, the latest version of COUNTER (R4) added new metrics to the DB1 reports.  The metrics included now searches, result clicks, and record views.   I have the definitions of what they are and the differences, but I am interested in what others are tallying for their data collection.  We used to tally regular searches but result clicks and record views seem a more accurate reflection of use to me.  Have any of you grappled over this and come to a conclusion of which metric you think is the best reflection of use for your library?


Thanks in advance,
