Web & Digital Statistics Notes

2017-2018: During the 2017-2018 year, libray 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.
