Hello again. First, thanks to those who have responded so far. I've already
received some very good information and look forward to hearing from more of
you. I was asked in one email to post my message again with my company
information, and I'm happy to do so.

Hello. I work for a publisher and we are researching the feasibility of providing
usage statistics to our institutional subscribers. If anyone is willing and has
the time to either post a message to this list or send me a direct email with
your thoughts on what type of information you, as a librarian, would most like
to receive in a usage statistics report from a publisher, I would greatly
appreciate your assistance. Please include the type of information you need
as well as the format in which you need to receive it. Any other thoughts
would be beneficial as well. We don't currently provide usage statistics, but
since we are receiving more and more requests to do so, we obviously want to
provide that service if that is what our subscribers require.
Thank you in advance for your help.
