Hooray for Data!
Laura and I were doing some data investigation yesterday and we came across some great figures that I thought you all might find interesting! As of 4/24/14:
There are 8,601 "active" TC members (with an ID card expiring in the future)
3,223 of those TC members have never checked out an item
1,082 of TC members have checked out 1 item at some point
4,296 of TC members have checked out more than 1 item at some point
Of the 8,601 "active" TC members, 62.5% check out materials in the library.
The 62.5% of library users are broken down into:
15.2% are faculty
4.2% are professional staff
3.0% are CU students
11.4% are MISC associations
There are currently 8,904 materials checked out to library users.
1,005 students hold 4,344 materials
310 faculty hold 2,099 materials
700 misc (includes CU, Alumni, staff, etc) hold 2,461 materials
Of the 8,904 checked out materials:
8,511 are books/bound serials
Top 3 locations being Main Stacks(6,255), Curr (827), and Juv (442)
135 are films/videos

3,083 of the checked out items are overdue, racking up $22,700 in fines so far!
