METRO Library 2.0 SIG Meeting: Using Social Web tools for Library Statistics and Assessment

Please join the METRO lib2.0 SIG on Tuesday November 1, 2011 from 10:00 AM to noon-12. The discussion theme for the upcoming meeting is “Using Social Web tools for Library Statistics and Assessment”

The social web offers a number of ways to gather more data than ever – bitly, twitter, facebook, google analytics, (etc.) all offer potentially rich-data about who is using our resources (and where and when)

Have you found a new, creative way to use/analyze those statistics in order to update library services, workflows, acquisitions, hours, job descriptions, internal communications,A� responsibilities?

Have you been successful in demonstrating the value of your library or your library’s services from the data mined from these social-web tools?

Are you willing to share your advice on how to do this successfully (orA� to offer suggestions on what not to do) for our November 1 Lib2.0 SIG group meeting?A� If so, please contact the co-conveners of the Lib2.0 SIG before Friday 10/28 so that we can accommodate as many helpful presentations as possible.
