Abstract:The dissertation collection of INSEPS (Higher National Institute of Popular Education and Sport, Dakar, Senegal) consists of 152 documents (PDF format) related to academic work submitted between 2005 and 2008, as well as all references to available dissertations of INSEPS' library. These have, since January 2011, been hosted on the BEEP (electronic libraries in partnership) website which uses the Greenstone software. Through this study, an attempt is made to better define the audience of documents of the collection, following their setting on the web. An attempt is also made to measure the volume and change of this audience over time. The variety of users is examined and their various concerns are studied. The investigation is based on analysis of modes and frequencies of internet consultations of documents in PDF format. This approach is based on the use of log files of the BEEP Apache server.
