Example story: As a researcher, I want to find what is being used (read, annotated, bought by libraries, etc.) by the scholarly communities not only at my institution but at others, and to find sources used elsewhere but not by my community

This use case requires understanding of the relevant community of the user. This would require them to be authenticated and community inferred by some means/data from their identity, or for community to be specified as part of the discovery process, or for community to be inferred as part of the discovery process.

Out of scope: n/a

Potential Demonstrations

A. In institutional and/or consortial catalog discovery UI, return search results in order of usage rank, and allow filtering on usage-rank ranges. (Metrics of usage ranking can vary across institutions, and lesser used is more meaningful than least used since the long tail is of zero usage)

B. In catalog UI, use heat-mapping within virtual shelves of selected clusterings of catalog items (by subject, uniform title, author's works, Wikipedia catalog buddies, works by an academic dept. etc.) to visualize usage rank

C. In catalog UI, allow users to see raw component scores of scaled usage rank

D. In catalog UI, have feature for exporting result sets in preferred format (CSV, JSON, XML, etc.). Rob/Simeon: This seems generic, remove from this use case unless we have a specific offline data analysis story?

E. In consortial catalog UI, have feature to allow viewing comparative usage data across institutions - Including seeing works heavily used at one university but not at another
