Presentation Description

In libraries, we capture statistics for almost every aspect of service. We use these statistics to prove our worth to administrators, deans, and faculty. We often capture details such as time, date, number of students, etc. for library instruction, but what does that really tell us? We often miss crucial information such as how well our students master information literacy skills and how additional feedback might inform changes in our instruction programming. Numbers do not often demonstrate a complete picture of how well or how poorly library instruction programs are working. This presentation will focus on how Samford University Library librarians use LibAnalytics to go beyond statistics to capture student, librarian, and faculty learning as well as inform information literacy outcomes.
