Library analytics bibliography

Graham Stone from the Library Impact Data Project (LIPD) has just posted a new library-analytics bibliography at: http://library.hud.ac.uk/blogs/projects/lidp/library-analytics-bibliography/

The LID Project aimed to prove a statistically significant correlation between library usage and student attainment using activity data from institutional systems. The partner Universities represented a cross-section of size and mission which now provides a rich data set for identifying trends and patterns and informing service improvements, available at: http://eprints.hud.ac.uk/11543/ .
