News: UF Digital Collections (UFDC) Usage statistics: over 309 million (and counting!), An ABC for Baby Patriots, and more!

An A B C, for baby patriotsThanks to Chelsea Dinsmore, Director of Digital Production Services, for the update on the news on the updated usage stats for the UF Digital Collections (UFDC) and partner digital collections and libraries hosted by UF. The usage statistics were delayed with the updated release for the fully automated collection stats reader and writer (it reads the web logs, and the tracks and reports out the usage stats with emails to all contributors, and updated stats online) in the SobekCM Open Source Digital Repository System. Thanks to collaborators around the world for the new stats module, including Sobek Digital!
Chelsea’s full update is below. Thanks to Chelsea for overseeing and doing the project management on this release for UF!

Thanks to IT for implementing the new module from the SobekCM Open Source Development Community for the stats reader!  This update also triggered emails to all contributors to the UFDC and UFIR. Patrons may ask at service points about a “flurry of emails”.  Please reassure them that this was an instance of “catching up” and will not be a regular event.  Please direct any questions or concerns to the email or to me directly.
