One of the caveats with this is that it represents nearly a decade’s worth of usage and, during that time, the seven academic schools at Huddersfield have changed — e.g. some courses and subjects have moved from one school to another.
In terms of books, the students in this school rack up highest average number of loans.
Business students’ borrowing is much lower, but considerably more stable across the 5 years of graduates.
I guess there are no surprises here — when I did my HND in Computing at Huddersfield in the 1990s, I only visited the library once 😀
There’s something interesting going on here — the borrowing levels for firsts and thirds is very similar, with 2:1 and 2:2 being lower. Very curious!
From memory, Applied Sciences make much higher usage of journals than books.
The art stock is much more likely to be used within the library, rather than loaned.
