Case study: COUNTER data and big deals at the University of Liverpool

07 September 2021

Jeff Woods, Usage Analyst in Libraries, Museums and Galleries at the University of Liverpool, developed an in-house system for displaying data and analytics relating to its big deals. This case study examines how he developed dashboards and analysed data from several sources, including essential COUNTER metrics.

Some of the key takeaways from the study include

  • Excel is powerful, and using slicers, filters and other tools can help make the most of your data.
  • The combination of pre-set dashboard views and on-the-fly tailoring allows users to run detailed interrogations of the data if they need to, without being overwhelming for regular use.
