Library Analytics and Metrics project (jiscLAMP) aims to enable libraries to capitalise on the many types of data they capture in day-to-day activities, using this to support the improvement and development of new services and demonstrate value and impact in new ways across the institution.
The project will be developing a prototype shared library analytics service for UK academic libraries. Initially this is being envisioned as a kind of data dashboard, bringing together disparate data sets and visualising them in an attractive and meaningful way.
The project is a partnership between Jisc, Mimas (at the University of Manchester) and the University of Huddersfield running until December 2013 when it will deliver a prototype service for use by the community. It is funded under the Jisc Digital Infrastructure: information and library infrastructure programme.
