Conference Video: “Library Analytics – Usage Data for Collection Development and Management”

An wonderfully informative presentation by Deborah Blecic, Associate Professor & Bibliographer, at the University of Illinois at Chicago about library analytics.

Blecic spoke at an OCLC event about library analytics on June 29, 2013 during the 2013 ALA Annual Conference.

The presentation runs less than 30 minutes and is an excellent overview/introduction/review about library analytics. Even if you don’t watch now, worth a bookmark and/or sharing with others.

The video was made available on YouTube earlier today.

You can access the complete slide deck here (PDF).
