The winner of this award was Northumbria University for their dashboard initiative. You can find out more about this in their presentation at Talis Insight Europe 2018, you can watch the recording here.

Talis Aspire User Group representatives thought that Northumbria University showed excellent strategic alignment with their dashboard analytics within the national (eg TEF) and University environment (Digital First).  Moreover, it’s not easy to present reading list stats in an engaging way, but this does the trick and makes the viewer want to find out more.

It seems clear that the benefits of having easily readable information have been varied and valuable as a communication tool between the library, faculties and other University departments.

Rebecca Naughten, Reading Lists Assistant at Northumbria University said: ‘Higher Education is increasingly making use of data analytics to inform a variety of strategic planning, and to demonstrate the positive impact, growth, and value of services – as acknowledged by Talis’s development plans for enhanced analytics. It is gratifying to receive recognition from the user community for the work that we have invested in our analytics dashboard, and we appreciated the chance to share what we had done.’
