Monthly productivity statistics for Monographic Acquisitions and Copy Cataloging (MACC) Unit, University Library, University of Rhode Island. Data for fiscal year include bibliographic, item, and order records created, updated, and deleted by the MACC Unit in the HELIN integrated library system.
These statistics were first collected in 2001/02 to illustrate that, despite the fact that the number of books ordered was decreasing, staff were spending more of their time on database maintenance. After this situation was documented for seven years, it was felt that gathering these numbers was no longer necessary. Therefore, 2008/09 is the last year for which these statistics are posted.
