At Minnesota State University Mankato (MNSU), we have been exploring new Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for journal packages. Most recently, we started developing subject-package measures as a category, including as a measure of utility or as a measure of supply. Although we could previously combine filters per subject and per package, this caused us to narrow data to a single subject. Now, we can display the results for all subjects and packages as one table, which empowers us to make comparisons easily, to understand the value we gain from our packages better, and to see any subject impacts of cancellations more clearly. We only recently developed these tables, but we’d like to share them because we think they are very interesting and potentially powerful. With proper underlying data maintenance, these tables only take 10-20 minutes to make. We’ll talk about previous versions of this category of measures, the current development context, demonstrate examples, and provide tips on how to make them.
