The Final Blog reflection on the Library Impact Data Project was posted last week. The project aimed to discover if there is a statistically significant correlation across a number of universities between library activity data and student attainment. The answer is a resounding YES – there is statistically significant relationship between both book loans and e-resources use and student attainment.
The post also discusses the Project’s output, next steps, how to disseminate the findings for the benefit of others, lessons learned during the project, and some final thoughts. The blog will have open data added over the next few weeks and during August the Team will be blogging about the themes that have been brought out in the focus groups. At the recent final project meeting, it was agreed that all 8 partners would continue to do use the LIDP blog to talk about specific issues with data and as the instititions carry forward their findings.
