McLean, VA (March 31, 2011) – LogiXML, the pioneer of web-based business intelligence software, today announced that Purdue University Libraries has selected Logi Insight to track and analyze the usage of library resources, including e-resources, which represent the largest and fastest growing part of Purdue's budget. Purdue joins Boston College, New York University, and Texas Tech University to adopt Logi Insight for Libraries.
"Using Logi Insight puts us in a position where we can understand how patrons are utilizing e-resources, as well as physical resources," said Paul Bracke, the director of technology for Purdue Libraries. "Like all academic libraries, we've seen demand for e-resources skyrocket in recent years, and we're at a point where e-resources represent more than 80 percent of our budget. Getting insight into library utilization data is one of our top priorities."
Logi Insight for Libraries was designed to help libraries track and analyze the usage of library resources that universities spend millions of dollars each year to maintain. The solution allows librarians to better justify their budget requests based on what is being used by students, staff and other patrons. Prior to this technology, most libraries have struggled to access valuable operational data which is spread out across multiple isolated data silos.
Logi Insight makes it possible for librarians and administrators to measure patron utilization of library resources, circulation data, e-resources, budget data, and other information that is unique to libraries.
"Logi Insight is the first solution that enables librarians to analyze resource utilization data in a way that allows them to make more informed budgetary decisions," said Brett Jackson, CEO of LogiXML. "We are excited to be providing this capability to Purdue's academic library system."
Founded in 2000, LogiXML was the first to market with next generation, web-based business intelligence software. LogiXML provides web-based dashboards, user-friendly reports, and on-demand analysis that enables both technical and non-technical users to make better decisions for their organizations.
