[Eril-l] Methods of Gathering Statistics

The problem with going to any other tool besides Excel is getting others to go along.  If the processes are centralized and few individuals involved, then going with another tool could prove more successful than otherwise.  Adding to the difficulty is the differing structures and underlying infrastructure of the various sources of data.  Excel does prove to be the most versatile tool to form a central hub.  But there other tools that may be better, especially for online ingesting and processing of data.

I'm also interested in others' responses.

Subject: [Eril-l] Methods of Gathering Statistics


We are in the process of implementing a statistics dashboard here at our library. We're in the initial stages and wanted to reach out to other institutions to see what has worked. We've seen some really great dashboards just searching web!  Specifically we're curious to know what types of programs or tools (i.e. Google Analytics) others have used for compiling statistics like gate count, reference interactions, etc.. We're experts at spreadsheets ;-), but figure there must other methods out there. Those of you with dashboards (or even those of you just in the business of gathering statistics), please let me know what is working for you!

Thank you,
