Library guide assessment: an in-depth look at science, engineering and business subject guides

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Library guides are widely used to organize and share information. At the University of Alberta, subject librarians use library guides to create subject area guides, topical guides and course-specific guides. These guides are a common tool, but how helpful are they to our users? How often are they used? Do they provide a good user experience? Are there more effective ways to provide our users with subject-specific information and resources? To answer these questions, this research project will assess subject guides for Science, Engineering and Business using a mixed-methods approach. For the first phase of our research, we performed an in depth analysis of selected library guides using quantitative data from Libguide statistics and Google Analytics. This presentation shares how we performed our assessment and what insights were gained. We also describe plans for the qualitative assessment to follow.
