NSLA Consortium members subscribe to a number GALE products, I will
see if they have experience a similar drop off.

Many of our Gale databases have seen a decline in use between 2012 and
2015, but some have seen an increase.

We are in the process of assembling usage statistics for our online
databases for the period 2012 to present. We are noticing a
significant drop off in apparent usage for all of our Gale databases
from 2013 to 2014.
This makes me think that perhaps the vendor changed something about
how they "count" somewhere in that time period. I can -- and will --
reach out to Gale about this, but also was curious to find out if any
other libraries have noticed a similar phenomenon?
Thanks for your help,
