The DLF Analytics working group has been active since 2014. Early on, the group decided their goal would be to draft a set of high level metrics to track using analytics. The group eventually decided to scope their efforts around the widely - adopted Google Analytics service. The resulting white paper, "Best Practices for Google Analytics in Digital Libraries" is now available.

OLD PAGE CONTENT:

In December 2014, we began to draft a set of high-level types of data we want to capture with analytics, such as:

  • Referrals
  • Search terms
  • Number of users
  • Number of accesses
  • Number of downloads

We also began to define a set of content types, as those may impact the capture of analytics. Examples include:

  • Institutional repositories
  • Licensed resources
  • Digitized unique content
  • Datasets
  • Finding aids
  • Websites

And we also realized that different audiences may need different information gathered. Here's our first draft of potential audiences:

  • Administrators
  • Content selectors
  • Metadata providers
  • System administrators
