OverDrive Statistics by Library

How we count has changed!

Prior to 2012, OverDrive checkout stats were based on a patron's PSTAT (statistical code based on their residential address). If they lived in a municipality with a library, their OverDrive use was attributed to their municipality's library. If they lived outside of a municipality with a library, that use was attributed to the county in which they reside.

Beginning in January 2012, stats are now based on "Home Library" instead of PSTAT. By making this switch:

• every use of OverDrive is attributed to a SCLS library (much nicer!)
• usage stats for all of the SCLS Online Resources (EBSCO, Heritage Quest, etc) will be determined the same way --- by the user's "Home Library"

Because OverDrive is available to all SCLS residents, the switch to Home Library did not change access, only how the usage is counted. For more information about "Home Library" in LINKcat, please see the "What is Home Library?" page.

What this means for statistics

• Comparisons between 2012 and ealier years will not be "apples-to-apples."
• Some libraries may notice a drop in checkouts in 2012 because of this change in how we count.

OverDrive Checkouts By Library

• Monthly checkouts by library: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 (below chart)
