METRO Library 2.0 SIG Meeting: Using Social Web tools for Library Statistics and Assessment

Please join the METRO lib2.0 SIG on Tuesday November 1, 2011 from 10:00 AM to noon-12. The discussion theme for the upcoming meeting is "Using Social Web tools for Library Statistics and Assessment"

The social web offers a number of ways to gather more data than ever - bitly, twitter, facebook, google analytics, (etc.) all offer potentially rich-data about who is using our resources (and where and when)

Have you found a new, creative way to use/analyze those statistics in order to update library services, workflows, acquisitions, hours, job descriptions, internal communications, responsibilities?

Have you been successful in demonstrating the value of your library or your library's services from the data mined from these social-web tools?

Are you willing to share your advice on how to do this successfully (or to offer suggestions on what not to do) for our November 1 Lib2.0 SIG group meeting? If so, please contact the co-conveners of the Lib2.0 SIG before Friday 10/28 so that we can accommodate as many helpful presentations as possible.
