The proposed HOLLIS Usage API would expose the full granularity of this data, at the transaction level, and with full patron group profiling (along the lines described above – this would not, of course, include any data identifying the patron at the individual level).  In addition.  Such an API would make it possible to write tools which would help answer such question questions as: which parts of the Aleph catalog has seen the most usage since 2002, or in any other time period?  Which parts of the catalog are trending up in terms of their usage, which parts down?  What are the most checked-out items by the faculty at FAS compared to that at Divinity?  How does undergraduate student usage at Harvard differ from faculty usage?  What are the most popular items dealing with late-19-century German history checked out by FAS faculty?
