Notes

2021-2022:  The library's Facebook page was unpublished by Facebook with no explanation or response to inquiry.  In light of the low impact of views and interactions, the decision was made to end the library's social media presence, so both Facebook and Twitter accounts were deactivated.  Pages found on the Library in the Classroom page were combined for one total, which accounts for its sharp jump in views.  

2020-2021:  In July 2020, the home page was restructured to remove the EagleSearch search box in favor of boxes for patrons to choose from - Databases, Journals, or EagleSearch.  This seemed to cut down on the number of searches geared toward library services like tutoring and databases, and is likely the reason for the higher A-Z journal list usage and the lowered Collections link visits.  Many instruction topics increased in views due to so much instruction moving online and not taught in-person by librarians.

2019-2020:  The COVID-19 pandemic response in March led to an extended Spring Break period and all courses moved to online delivery through June, 2020, which may have impacted the page views.

2018-2019:  In March 2019, the campus switched from the ModX CMS to Omni CMS.  Due to the change in base URLs for all pages, analytics were no longer available for our library pages.  We decided not to report page views since March 4, 2019 on the new site due to it being so close to the end of the reporting year.

2017-2018: During the 2017-2018 year, library web pages were converted to a standard Tennessee Tech template in order to prepare for the new content management system coming in 2018. Lapses in data reflect either the move from one library system to the other, the discontinuing of LibGuides, or the addition of new collections or categories for statistical data.

2016-2017: In August 2016, Tennessee Tech switched EagleSearch from ProQuest Summon to Ex Libris Primo. In March 2017 Tennessee Tech discontinued its subscription to LibGuides. All relevant LibGuide content was moved to the library website in January/February 2017. ContentDM had a huge increase in content and usage this year.
