Proposed Session Title

Library Data and Student Success

Description

Does the use of library print and digital collections correlate with course pass/fail rates, grades, or GPA? How does use of instructional tools or attendance at instruction sessions or workshops correlate with student success in the classroom? Using circulation data, online resource usage records, workstation login data, workshop registrations, and more, the University of Minnesota Libraries are attempting to answer these questions. In addition, we are discovering very interesting demographic data about just who uses the libraries at the University of Minnesota. At this session learn more about this unique project, how we hope to answer the questions above, demographic data revealed so far, and (hopefully) data that supports what all of us know already: using the libraries helps students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Note: at the time of this proposal this project is in full swing but it is unknown whether or not we will have the compiled data to present by March. We also unsure if the data will say what we want it to say. But we are hopeful. Fingers crossed!
