Can we tie library usage data to student success?

Yes! Like any unit on campus, it is essential for the University of Minnesota Libraries to better demonstrate our value to the academy. The goal of this project: to show, using university metrics of success, what library use does for student success at the U of M. In addition, analyzing the connections between library use and academic success will provide evidence-based data that can inform service improvements and efficiencies, the development of new services, and the allocation of resources for necessary impact.

The Library Data and Student Success project is a partnership between the University of Minnesota Libraries and the Office of Institutional Research.
