Marquette University Libraries have installed custom tracking code and meta tags on most of our web interfaces including CONTENTdm, Digital Commons, Ebsco EDS, ILLiad, LibCal, LibGuides, WebPac, and the general library website.  The data retrieved from these interfaces is gathered into Google’s Universal Analytics, Tag Manager, and Webmaster Tools which when used in combination create an in-depth view of user behavior across all these web properties.   For example Google Tag Manager can grab search terms which can be related to a specific collection within Universal Analytics and related to a particular demographic.  The current versions of these tools make systems setup an easy process with little or no programming experience required.  Making sense of the volume of data retrieved, however, is more difficult. How does Google data compare to vendor stats?   How can the data be normalized using Tag Manager?  Can this data help your organization make better decisions?

Tech Requirements

Live, synchronous lectures will require attendee participation via internet audio. Attendees will need a wired, high-speed internet connection, and a headset or speakers.  It is recommended that attendees use headsets connected to their computers (VOIP) during an Adobe Connect session. All attendees are muted and should use the built in chat function to communicate with presenters.  The use of computer speakers with a mic is not recommended, as it may cause echo. The recommended browser is Mozilla Foxfire although other browsers should work adequately for attending.
