Support strategic library goals with a better understanding of e‑resource ROI
Make sense of your EZproxy log files
You know there is a vast amount of e-resource usage data in EZproxy log files, but where do you start? EZproxy Analytics enriches and transforms this data so that you can understand, communicate, and visualize it more easily.
Get a more holistic view of e-resource usage
Content providers’ COUNTER reports can have gaps. EZproxy Analytics gives you complete, reliable, and rich usage statistics across all the content platforms you subscribe to so that you can account for these gaps and validate COUNTER reports.
See meaningful data in a few clicks
Determining the best data to query and how to visualize it can be time-consuming. Eliminate the hassle of manipulating data and creating reports by accessing out-of-the-box dashboards that highlight meaningful data for library decision making.
Create custom reports for deeper insights
Maybe you want to create your own reports and visualizations to dive even deeper into your data. EZproxy Analytics gives you the ability to query data points like content platform, resource type, and location to create visualizations like graphs, charts, and interactive maps.
“[EZproxy Analytics data showed us that] off-campus users are the single largest user group. Very few users are actually in the library building itself. We can use this data to inform conversations around modes of delivering research support.”
Collection Development Librarian, Sonoma State University
