Their project aimed to tell them whether student use of digital scholarly resources correlated with student success, utilising institutional and library data, and to make it available in a way that was easy to understand.

In this session, Andy shares 7 pieces of advice he learned from reflecting on the project, and he shares the dashboard they created.
