Library analytics should enable libraries to create, customize, visualize, and even share reports with other peer institutions. This has become a reality with the introduction of library service platforms, such as Ex Libris Alma. In this session, we will review real reports with data generated from Texas Woman’s University and highlight benchmark analytics—reports that allow staff to anonymously compare their library’s performance to peer institutions—all in a single, unified resource management tool. We will walk through creating customized reports, see trends in your physical and electronic spending, compare your library to similar institutions, and explore how to manage COUNTER reports all from one place.
