developing strong library collections

Over the past couple of months, I have been exploring ways to analyse the use of our library collections, both print and electronic. I am currently in the process of exploring a collections analysis tool, LibInsight, in which I have started loading usage statistics for e-resources. I am also working with a Novanet tool, Greenglass, which was a snapshot of our print collections taken in December of 2016. Over the next few months I’ll explore both of these tools and other reporting options so I can develop a plan for analysing our library collections to ensure we are providing what we need to.
