Electronic Resource librarians are able to collect a large amount of data across resources, often the biggest challenge is distilling the data into something meaningful to contribute to the strategic mission of the organization. The Cunningham Memorial library acquired ProQuest/ ExLibris Summon in 2015. This talk will discuss how the eResources librarian used the new discovery workflow to begin to harvest user search queries as a means to:
Inform resource placement and design on the library's website and suite of eResource tools.
Inform and refine the Springshare LibGuides tags for better discovery.
Craft "best bets" to assist users in getting to their just in time information needs as quickly and effectively as possible.
Empower instruction librarians to fine tune their information literacy curriculum based on search skills of our users.
