It’s becoming increasingly important for libraries and institutions to capitalise on the data they’re collecting as part of their day-to-day activities. The Jisc Library Analytics and Metrics Project (JiscLAMP) aims to help libraries bring together this data into a prototype shared library analytics service for UK academic libraries.
We want to help libraries bring together disparate data sets in an attractive and informative dashboard, allowing them to make connections, and use these connections and insights to inform strategy and highlight the role the library is playing in the success of the institution. For more details of what we hope the project will achieve, see Ben Showers’s introductory blog post.
LAMP is a partnership project between Jisc, The University of Huddersfield, and Mimas at the University of Manchester. It is funded under the Jisc Digital Infrastructure: information and library infrastructure programme.
