Please share with digital resources librarians and others who work with usage data for your library.

In response to feedback from the FDLP community, the PURL Usage Reporting Tool has been enhanced. Our library users have many different networks and IP addresses used to access PURLs found in catalog records and online finding aids. Up to 10 IP Address ranges were initially allocated for each library’s PURL Usage Report. We have received numerous requests to increase the number of IP addresses/Hostname patterns. The enhancement allows for up to 25 IP addresses/Hostnames that can be saved for the creation of custom library PURL usage reports.
For questions about the PURL Usage Report, submit a question to askGPO. Select Federal Depository Library as the GPO customer type, and choose the category, “PURLs.”
