MINES for Libraries® (Webcast Recording)

  • The Association of Research Libraries has released a free recording of theMINES for Libraries® Webcast, held on September 18, 2012. The webcast provides potential and current participants with vital information about the MINES for Libraries® service, an online, transaction-based survey that collects data on the reasons people use electronic resources and on the demographics of users. Terry Plum (Simmons College Graduate School of Library & Information Science), one of the original developers of MINES along with Brinley Franklin (University of Connecticut), explains the survey, survey questions, and methods. Three case studies from Catherine Davidson (for the Ontario Council of University Libraries and for York University) and Margaret Martin Gardiner (Western Ontario University) describe the rationale for using the service and how MINES has been implemented in consortial and individual library settings. Gary Roebuck (ARL) provides an overview of the data and reports produced for MINES, and Martha Kyrillidou (ARL) hosts and facilitates the event.
