The OverDrive APIs do give a total checkout count although it is
hard for me to tell if these are all time checkouts across all

numbers I'm guessing that they are for all libraries. Perhaps some
sort of normalization could be done.

copy counts for eBooks, but that would not likely reflect a
decline in popularity as there is no motivation to weed copies.
