Working my way through some usage stats on the system, auditing the data used in some reports Maybelle ran off earlier in the week. She's just started the community cohesion project and has spent the larger part of the past month contacting local groups, getting them in to have a chat and literally leading them by the hand to the collections that had been bought to support the project before Christmas. Consequently I was not much surprised to find that the use of this collection had gone up twofold in March compared to January or February.
Mary's response was: "Oh, that looks artificially high!"
We couldn't possibly have an increase in loans because we've now got somebody in post and they're selling the collection to its intended audience.
