Data & Resource Sharing [clear filter]

Adventures in data visualization: Using Tableau to show the value of resource sharing
I propose to present my experience with an ongoing data visualization project, in which I use Tableau to create visualizations based on resource sharing data. Data visualization can be an impactful way to show the value of resource sharing work to administrators and the public. _x000D_
In this session, I intend give a very brief overview of useful concepts and the software used (Tableau), discuss project planning and issues I encountered, and show my final visualizations. My visualizations will include traditional metrics, such as statistics on fill rates and turnaround times, but also other ways we can show the value of our work (for example, by visually showing how resource sharing work connects and helps other areas of the library, or mapping where borrowed material originates). _x000D_
By sharing my own experience in which I started from scratch, I hope to encourage others who are curious about using data visualization to show the value of their work.

Comparing Apples to Oranges: An Investigation into the Validity of Interlibrary Loan Statistics
In an effort to understand the validity of self-reported Interlibrary Loan (ILL) statistics, University of South Carolina librarians developed a survey to determine how libraries classify, categorize, and report ILL data. In May 2016, we emailed all 116 Interlibrary Loan departments within the Association of Research Libraries with a request to complete our survey. We will discuss our results and the implications that these results have on the validity of reported ILL statistics. We will explore possibilities for expanding this research and argue for more standardized collection and reporting practices.

Using Tipasa's Patron Request Form to Gather Statistics in a Library that Serves Multiple Institutions
The AUC Robert W. Woodruff library serves 4 institutions (Spelman College, Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University and the Interdenominational Theological Center) and the library has to provide statistics on usage specific to each institution's student, faculty and staff population.
This session will show how to use the patron status and department fields to gather patron status relevant to our institution. The session will also show how these patron statistics can be accessed through WorldShare Analytics in the event that statistics are needed before OCLC Usage Statistics become available.

Document Delivery Services Usage at Medium-Sized University with Graduate Student Programs
Bradley University is a medium sized university, and to meet the research needs of its patrons the library uses three types of document delivery services: ILLiad, Get It Now and purchasing directly from the publishers. Get It Now was implemented in 2012 to supplement the collection because of large serials cancellations. During this time period, the university established several new graduate programs, and the library has become dependent upon document delivery services in particular for fields that were not traditionally covered by the library’s collections to meet the needs of these students. Previous studies at Bradley University have shown that the graduate students request the most articles per capita, and the rise in graduate student population has correlated with a rise in requests for articles through document delivery services. The question is, if this increase is happening at other universities the same size and student body type as Bradley University, and is the increase co
