Getting Library Data to Where It's Needed

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Libraries collect, update, analyze, archive, display, share, and discuss internal data as they assess the services and resources that they provide to users.  This session will discuss two libraries' approaches to using and sharing internal data.  Concordia University St. Paul used Google Apps and Sites,  to build an internal site that tracks database usage and costs, student enrollment,  and user demographics. They also created a dashboard for managing and assessing student workers.   The University of Michigan built Datamart to give library staff an easy way for all staff to query the library system and generate spreadsheets. Datamart generates 50-60 reports each week, seamlessly getting data to where it can do the most good. The presenter will talk about creating the system, issues around transforming data from the ILS, and demonstrate the flexible query-building system and typical reports.
