PL 29/10: New fact sheets

Filed under: statistics, Uncategorized — plinius @ 7:51 pm

Since 2008 our second year students have carried out more than sixty small studies of user activities in Norwegian libraries.

Their reports are in Norwegian – and not intended for publication – but the data they contain should definitely by circulated. One way of achieving this is to write fact sheets for each library, summarizing the information in a standard format.

I started to do this in Norwegian some months ago and have now added a handful of fact sheets in English. The first batch covers two public and two academic libraries:

Public libraries

Academic libraries

These are not research publications, but rather beta versions of data sets that may be included in different types of documents – including research papers – at a later stage. The method itself is introduced on the CTT home page.
