From Data to Outreach and Back Again: How Library Instruction Can Boost Usage/Statistics

Library instruction sessions may not traditionally be thought of as outreach for specific library resources but in fact they can play a significant role in increasing usage statistics.  Usage statistics, although somewhat flawed, can be a good jumping off point to determine what resources to review and discuss with university faculty.  Qualitative methods can also be used to determine faculty priorities for e-resources.  Learn how instructional librarians can work together with electronic resource librarians to evaluate subject-specific electronic resources in order to both promote resources and determine future directions for collection development.  Attendees will learn how the promotion of underutilized resources through library instruction and other efforts can help to either increase their use or demonstrate that they are no longer needed.
