In the top ten list of favorite librarian tasks, creating LibGuides often ranks right between knitting and collection development. However, just because you can create a LibGuide on a topic does not mean that you should! Thankfully, through data informed decision-making using LibGuides’ statistics module you can determine how best to allocate your time.
In the video tutorial accompanying this quarter’s newsletter, we’ll walk you through accessing these valuable pieces of data. Springshare provides statistics for each of your LibGuides, showing you the daily and monthly views of guides including usage for each individual tab. Additionally, you can see where the traffic to your LibGuides is coming from and which assets on your guide are engaging your visitors.
Too busy to look at your stats? Aestiva Solutions can help. We’d love to work with you to create a personalized report summarizing your site usage in an easy-to-read format and offering next steps so that you can focus your time this summer. Package pricing starts at $300 for up to 50 LibGuides. See our website for details.
Until next time,
Ruth and Eric
