Usage PUBMED Outside Tool : SFX Statistics of RUGLinks (2010)


For years now, I am putting together this list of the usage of our PubMed Outside Tool link.
In january 2008 I blogged about it.
This is an update!
In 2009 it was: 356.126 clicks (was 262.579)

We still see a strong rise of the use of PUBMED wíth RUGlinks (our Outside-tool, the SFX-linker).
The special URL turns on our library’s Outside Tool for every record displayed in PubMed.

People click the special URL with our Outside Tool username on average:


• 978 times per day (was 719 in 2008)

• 40 times per hour (was 30 in 2008)

every 90 seconds   somebody clicks TO PubMed with this URL! (was 2 min.)

Yearly:
2010: 276.897 (so far..)
2009: 356.126 (New Year RECORD!)
2008: 270.144
2007: 262.579
2006: 221.803
2005: 189.486
2004: 73.256
2003: 24.152
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even more interesting is the rising number of times users actually CLICK on our library’s Outside Tool icon, on average:


• 1199 times per day (was 924)
• 50 times per hour (was 38)
every 72 seconds somebody clicks the RUGLINKS icon in PUBMED to get access to the fulltext and see info about the availability of the specific document.(was 90 sec.)


•Total 2009: 436.500 times ( was 337.436 2007)
