Slides:

Librarians and a computer science professor at Ryerson University collaborated on a project to analyze the library’s EZProxy logs. Working with campus partners in the Registrar’s Office and Campus Computing Services, they matched IDs in the logs with demographic details about the user. This collaboration has enabled the library to take control of its data and, most importantly, answer these vital questions when evaluating electronic resources: What resources are used? How often? And, for the first time, by who? Stern looks at using Zotero and Outwit, both tools that capture and maintain repositories for libraries and for individual users. Zotero captures citations, full text, images, webpages, and sound files for full-text links and searching. Outwit captures URL links, associated files, and scrapes data from unstructured websites into personal or organizational repositories
