Overall database use as measured by document downloads was slightly above average this quarter. Engineering resources Knovel and ASTM Compass continue to trade off top billing with Knovel coming out on top this quarter. Other science and engineering resources ASCE Library and the library's standalone subscription to Transportation Research Record (TRR) followed closely behind. The library plans to increase usage of all databases by continuing to develop LibGuides to promote the benefits of those resources and educate users on their functionality. We we continue to cross promote those guides on Twitter and LinkedIn and will feature them in Connections E-newsletter posts and may consider creating instructional videos for them (something we have done in the past), though we need a place to store those videos.
