Instant Ideas and Collaboration
It is common for libraries to be collect a lot of usage statistics, whether it be number of readers signed up to Summer reading challenge, to footfall, to the amount of book issued, to the numbers of time an online journal article has been accessed. But are we making the most of our stats? Are we even measuring the right things? This is what we’re hoping to get some discussion on in our next #uklibchat, if you’re interested please join us on:
Tuesday 5 May 2015 6.30 – 8.30pm UK time!
The agenda is available here please add the questions that you would like to ask about the topic
We also have a feature article written by Mathieu Lubrun: Using Statistical Software to Analyse Qualitative Data
@infohippy gave us some suggestions for useful tools for stats.
