Abstract


  • Key Takeaways • Without a valid, reliable way to collect data from various library and enterprise systems, it’s difficult to quantitatively assert how a library adds value. • The University of Wollongong Library developed the Library Cube, a tailored database and reporting function that joins library usage data with student data, including demographic and academic performance information. • Analysis of the resulting data reveals a strong correlation between students’ grades and use of information resources the library provides.
