Hi Tiffany,


I enjoyed Li Ma's presentation on E-Resources Troubleshooting.  Could not make it live at the last minute, saw recording.  I was also interested in the June 5th presentation on usage.  Will you also have a recorded session?


Thank you and be safe!

Friday, June 5 at 11AM


NCLA Event Calendar Listing: https://nclaonline.org/event-3842484


Seeing the Forest Despite the Trees - Part 1:  Analyzing the Usage of Databases and Journal Packages (Heidi Tebbe and Danica Lewis)


(Abstract for Part 1): Usage is central to renewal decisions, but the fact that a journal package or database is not one thing, but a group of many things, can complicate a renewal evaluation. In this talk, we will provide an overview of COUNTER statistics; identify the reports that are most useful when evaluating database or journal package renewals; and discuss how to format the data for analysis. We will also demonstrate different methods of visualizing both the group and individual components of a database or journal package.


Seeing the Forest Despite the Trees - Part 2:   Methods for Analyzing Faculty Research Output (Katharine Frazier, John Vickery, and Hilary Davis)


(Abstract for Part 2): Libraries have a wealth of data available to assess journal packages. By digging into publication data, the NC State University Libraries have learned which publishers our authors engage with the most via their publication and editorial work. In this session, we’ll discuss methods for analyzing publication data from Web of Science, including how to download data, identify top publishers, and more. We will also demo a homegrown web scraper that identifies institutional faculty editors. Finally, we’ll discuss how we marry these elements to provide an evaluative strategy for journal investments.
