Define Your Own, Custom, Datasets, Too
Create custom datasets for your own unique data-gathering needs. LibInsight can handle any number of fields and field types, form layouts, report variations, etc. Custom Datasets enable you to define specific fields and data points relevant to your library's statistics scenarios.
1. DEFINE DATASET FIELDS
Define any number of fields to be tracked: text fields, numeric, multiple choice, dates, scales, etc. Create calculations from 1 or more numeric or monetary fields, too.
2. DETERMINE USER ACCESS PERMISSIONS
Decide who can administer datasets, who can enter data, and who can run reports. LibInsight's finely-tuned user permissions ensure data integrity and security.
3. RECORD DATA MANUALLY OR IMPORT FROM FILES
LibInsight enables manual recording of transactions via forms and mobile devices. Or, import data from spreadsheets and combine with existing data in the system.
4. RUN STATISTICAL REPORTS AND ANALYZE YOUR DATA
Filter, slice, dice, and report on data inside each Dataset. The point-and-click filtering and reports builder help you navigate your custom datasets in a visual way.
Communicate With Stakeholders with Interactive Dashboards
Create Dashboards and publish them online, allowing you to communicate valuable library statistics to your community. Dashboards contain customized charts and time ranges and are continually updated.
The Dashboards builder is point-and-click and no programming or statistics knowledge is required to create and publish dashboards. Create as many public dashboards as you need, for whatever task/project - the only requirement is that the underlying data lives in LibInsight.
Get Out of the Data Silo: Cross-Dataset Analytics
Store all your statistical data in LibInsight and view relationships and correlations among previously siloed datasets. Produce cross-dataset tables and charts with multi-year trends. For example:
How does circulation compare to gate counts?
Do spikes in website traffic correlate to E-Resource downloads?
Is there a relationship between instruction sessions and number of research appointments held?
How does an increase in Room Reservations and Equipment Booking correlate to Gate Counts?
Cross-dataset analytics help with effective assessment and evaluation of library services. Make a stronger case for your library services by pulling information from previously siloed data.
Students, faculty, administrators, and the library staff rave about LibGuides, LibCal, LibAnswers, and LibInsight. Why? Because access to the library resources and library instruction has never been easier.

Shared Datasets - Mini-Communities for Data Collaboration
Collect and share data with libraries in your consortium, state, regional/national group, or with the entire LibInsight community… right from within your system. Shared Datasets in LibInsight enable data gathering and collaboration across any number of institutions. It's a great way for a group of institutions to collaborate and create unified data collection points and then run analysis to compare data and usage.

1. DEFINE SHARED DATASET FIELDS
Create a Shared Dataset in your LibInsight system and define relevant fields that everyone in the group will share.

2. CREATE A GROUP AND GRANT ACCESS
Select which other LibInsight systems should have access to record data and run analysis on this Dataset you created.

3. RECORD DATA COLLABORATIVELY AND PRODUCE REPORTS
All institutions in the Group can record individual transactions and then run reports on the accumulated shared data.
