OpenAthens Conference 2019: “Can you do something with this data?”

Samantha Heeson, electronic and data services librarian, Leeds Beckett University.

Integrated data is key to effective data analysis, but disparate data is often the reality. University library analytics is one area where this is changing. It is being driven by a desire to better understand library users, whether they be students or academics, and thus support their successful learning, researching and teaching experience, as well as the need to manage budgets and collections.

This session is about enabling broader and deeper analysis of OpenAthens e-resource usage data and looks at a pilot project at Leeds Beckett University Library, which assessed the feasibility of integrating OpenAthens e-resource usage data, collected at the user ID level, with Student Record data.
