The Statistics Workgroup will develop ways to help WPLC members gain an understanding of the statistics available to them through OverDrive and to help simplify the process of presenting that data.
The workgroup will:
- Identify the OverDrive use and collection statistics needed at the state, system and local library level.
- Identify ways to best share and use statistics.
- Recommend the creation of templates for infographics, charts, and other ways to feature data.
