Subject: [Eril-l] FOLLOW UP: Database cost per use statistics

Thank you to all who shared their statistics with me. I thought the group might be interested to see the averages I was able to compile for some of the databases. The average FTE was about 4000 students, primarily undergraduates. If I receive additional information, I will update and share again.
