?I do mine by full text article viewed. The problem of stating searches is a database that is user unfriendly could have lots of searches. I also measure with respect to program. For example, we only have so many Nursing students, but it's a key program. So if it's a high cost per article viewed in CINAHL I need to keep in mind the number of Nursing students we actually have.

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.
