RBDigital E-Content Circulation

RBDigital Circulation Statistics via researchIT CT
These statistics for each public library are provided for your use in the Annual Report. They are likely higher than circulation counts for previous years, because of changes to the RBDigital reports for researchIT CT. Circulation can no longer be identified as Adult, YA, or Juvenile. Include the totals in the "Other" categories on your Annual Report, specifically 4.29 for ebooks and 4.34 for downloadable audio.
