OSUL had already written definitions for basic and specialized reference for tracking statistics.
However, OSUL's usage of PLD for the same period is 2,209 searches and usage of American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language (ARTFL) (Chicago: University of Chicago, 1981) for the first eight months of 1999 totaled 2,220 searches--figures which are higher than, or approximate to, OhioLINK's English-language Chadwyck-Healey databases.
In the case of OSUL, several thousand queries each for PLD and ARTFL were deemed significant, and too the benefit of the products to dozens of faculty and students.
A 1996 OSUL survey of faculty revealed that a majority of respondents rated as "very important" (5 on the Likert scale) to their research printed journals (84 percent), printed books (60 percent), and electronic bibliographic databases (57 percent), whereas Internet resources and electronic books received 38 percent and 13 percent respectively.
For several years, OSUL bibliographers could not justify e-text purchases because the criterion of library infrastructure could not be met.
At OSUL, this is a concern but has not been a problem.
