Items Checked Out

Did you know that October is THE busiest month for students and the library? You might have suspected based on your syllabi, but take a look at the numbers:

  • Catalog searches are at their peak in October. During October 2012 the catalog was searched 137,204 times — over 4400 times per day.
  • Items checked out of the library are also hitting their peak. Today, nearly 14,700 items are checked out. (Don’t worry, though! The University of Louisville Libraries’ collection holds over 2.4 million volumes.)
