IL2007 - Session C102 — Putting Evidence-Based Practice to Work

Session C102 — Putting Evidence-Based Practice to Work
11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Frank Cervone, Assistant University Librarian for Information Technology, Northwestern University

• Design based on fact not feelings
• Analyzed search logs in voyager (we have voyager, perhaps we can do this as well??)
• Make no assumptions
• Note to self – find out what his team's "extensive reading list" consists of
• Data available to guide decisions and discussions
• Less pushback on changes as they are improvements not simply change for change sake
• Terminology still a problem
• Problem still to get people to use the library catalogue
• Presentation will be posted in IL2007 site later
• He will post link to reading list

Amanda Hollister, Web Services Librarian, Memorial Library, SUNY Cortland

• Breadcrumbs on web pages tracking where you are
• Used htat data to track people's tracks through site to particular pages
• Homegrown code
• Looked very complicated
