  • 1. Library Impact Data Project Update: May 2011
  • 2. Hypothesis
    • “ There is a statistically significant correlation across a number of universities between library activity data and student attainment”
  • 3. ‘ Correlation’ Just because I sleep in a garage, it does not make me a car. Picture: Some rights reserved by PinkMoose
  • 4. 2009-2010
  • 5. 2009-2010
  • 6. Conclusions so far
    • You can get a degree result of almost any kind without using the library, but:
    • students who gained a first are less likely to be in the set of non & low users than those who gained a lower grade;
    • students who gained the highest grades are more likely to be in the set of high library usage than those who gained lower grades.

  • 7. What next?
    • Results prepared and presented by University of Huddersfield;
    • Contribute findings from student focus groups;
    • Could run exercise again with richer data and extended date range;
    • Potential measure of impact of changes made to library service?
