Lavery Library works hard to bring you all types of books and media. Responding to the needs of Fisher, in 2012-2013, Lavery Library added ebooks to the collection. Since this time we’ve seen their use steadily increase. In 2020, a shift in the COUNTER standard for usage accounting led to the significant drop you see in the graph below.
