Statistics from our June 2012 report that analyzed Media Lending (DVDs, VHS tapes and CDs) for the Spring 2012 semester: 195 libraries (public & academic) borrowed media items during this period.

Northeast region libraries borrowing media total 89 libraries in 14 states, and a total of 183 requests. New York alone has 50 requests, but these are spread out among 22 libraries, with 5 requests the highest number from any single library. Statistics from Pennsylvania (12 libraries, 22 requests) and Massachusetts (15 libraries, 33 requests) show a similar scenario. In Vermont, we have a total of 24 requests for this period (among 10 libraries).
