International Study Released

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Survey of Academic Library Database Licensing Practices, 2016-17 Edition, now available

This international study presents data from 29 colleges and universities about their database licensing practices, including spending data on eBooks, databases, and eJournals.  The report looks closely at trends in how staff time is consumed on issues such as invoice-checking, contract examination, training patrons in database use and other tasks.

Data is broken out by many variables such as college type, enrollment, tuition level and other factors.  Some of the survey participants are: Johns Hopkins University Welch Medical Library, the Australian National University, the University of Bath, Vanderbilt University, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, University at Buffalo and UCONN Health, among others.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

·         8.52% of the time spent in database research by librarians sampled was spent on Google Scholar.

·         Public colleges in the sample spent a mean of $82,600 on eBook licenses in the past year.

·         Laptops accounted for a mean of 42% of database access for the libraries sampled, fixed workstations for 40.33%.

·         Research university libraries in the sample spent an average of more than 2,000 staff hours per year reviewing and paying invoices from database vendors.

Trial Database: PolicyMap

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

PolicyMap is an online (no software installation needed) U.S. national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with multidisciplinary applications for college students and faculty. It is used in undergraduate and graduate curriculum and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among others. Users can leverage thousands of U.S. data indicators in PolicyMap to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies.

PolicyMap data can be presented as maps, tables, charts and pre-built reports that can be incorporated into papers, presentations, blogs and websites. In addition, students can upload unlimited amounts of their own address-based data for use in PolicyMap, and can share these maps with others. Users can also download data from PolicyMap for use in other tools.

Data indicators are accessible via easy to use menus organized in categories including demographics, income and spending, housing, lending, quality of life, economy, education, health, federal guidelines, and analytics. Data can be viewed on a census block or census tract level in many cases, city, county, zip, state, US, as well as by congressional district, school district, state house and state senate districts.
