Digital resources play an increasingly important role in academic li- braries, which must demonstrate their value to the institution and their impact on student learning outcomes in new and more compelling ways. This study examines 5 years of vendor-supplied e-resource usage data in conjunction with other library and institution measures. Results are com- pared to major findings from other researchers, with examples of how e-metrics can be incorporated into a broader assessment of the library’s success in meeting the needs of its users.
