Statistical collection and analysis portal for the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries
Since 2006, CCR has worked in close collaboration with Dr. Gary Byrd (Director, UB Health Sciences library) and the Association of Academic Health Science Libraries (AAHSL) to develop an infrastructure for the collection, analysis, and dissemination of statistical data of academic health science libraries across the United States and Canada. The AAHSL has developed a number of survey instruments to collect detailed data on library statistics including collection details such as monograph and serials, expenditures, use of library services, staffing levels, and salary data. The portal allows AAHSL to develop new survey instruments and track data reported over multiple years.
In addition to the collection of data, the portal that CCR has developed provides detailed reporting and summary statistics to AAHSL members providing reports in several formats to support online viewing, print media, and digital download as Microsoft Excel workbooks. Graphical analysis tools are also provided allowing libraries to compare their data with that reported by their peers.
