A recent study by Scott (2016) examined how ILL (interlibrary loan) requests correlate to COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) usage in newly-subscribed journal packages. The study posited that a 1:17 (ILL:COUNTER) ratio could be used to predict journal usage in new packages or to predict ILL usage for journal titles if a package is canceled. Our project replicated this study with a different journal package by comparing ILL usage for the year preceding the acquisition of a new Sage journal package to COUNTER usage for the following year. Analysis revealed a similar ILL to COUNTER usage ratio but also some surprising findings related to denials and to overall package usage.
