Report on ALA Connect Usage

JFYI, I've posted a new report about usage of ALA Connect over the past five years on the ITTS News blog. Please share the report with your constituencies.

Hi Jenny,

Do these usage stats include conference scheduler activity and/or handout uploads/downloads? I'm not sure why I think this, but I was under the impression that conference schedulers are (or used to be) built on the ALA Connect platform.

Great question, Steven. These statistics include numbers from the 2011 schedulers, but we began running separate reports for them in in 2012 when they moved to being their own Drupal installations (the equivalent of an ala.org microsite).

Note that there does continue to be a spike in calendar events in Connect groups for Midwinter and Annual when we automatically create events for scheduler sessions, but those records live in Connect calendars and are separate from the schedulers.

Does that help?
