UL Data Dashboard

How University Libraries contributes to teaching, learning and research.

UL Data Dashboard

This guide tells the story of how we understand and meet the needs of learners, teachers and researchers who use University Libraries' (UL) resources, services and facility. We feel strongly about asking for patron feedback, regularly analyzing library data in the forms of inputs, outputs and usage data, and monitoring learning through the assessment of student learning outcomes.

Please let the Associate Dean of UL (uladmin@bgsu.edu) know if you have any questions about this guide or suggestions for how to improve it.
