We are often swimming in data we collect about our patrons and their usage of our library resources, but how can we make sense of those numbers in a way that will help us improve or adjust our services? In this presentation, you’ll learn about a statistics dashboard created by the Indianhead Federated Library System for member libraries to see and interpret data collected from a variety of sources in order to get a fuller picture of library resource usage. This dashboard incorporates ILS data, e-materials information, and wireless and computer usage into visual data display to help libraries further understand how their resources are being used by their communities.
