Dear collective wisdom,


A reference librarian here has asked me for a list of the most heavily-used journals in a particular discipline.  I told her that usage stats are reported by platform, and that I’m not aware of any way to pull a usage report that is sorted or filtered by discipline.  We have a usage collecting tool to combine all the platforms into a single report, but again, no way to filter by discipline.  It would have to be a title-by-title lookup.


But my colleague’s request seems so reasonable that it makes me wonder if I’m missing something obvious.  Do any of you know of a way to get a usage report for a specific discipline, or sort/filter a usage report by discipline?
