April 2012 Archives

On March 14, 2012 we gave our first presentation concerning the data we've gathered so far at the Library Technology Conference, held yearly at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.

The presentation below contains audio and the slides we presented. It also includes the question and answer session for those of you that can't get enough! Enjoy!

During the Fall Semester 2011, the University of Minnesota Libraries gathered U of M Internet IDs in 13 different service and resource areas. This site will describe what we found.

Welcome to our project site! We hope this site acts as a clearinghouse of sorts for all the data and correlations we have collected so far, and what we can collect and share in the future.

To whet your appetite, here is a graph that demonstrates any library use by students in all colleges, programs, and schools at the U of M during the Fall Semester, 2011. Note that across the university, no college, program, or school dropped below 60% for grad, undergrad, or professional student overall library usage.
