Gale Analytics
#1
Hi there,

Does anyone have experience with Gale Analytics? I saw a demo at RIPL 2018, but I can't recall what users were saying about the tool. Do you like it? What is it most useful for? Is it worth the investment? What, if any, other tools do you use alongside it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Janelle. 

I used Gale Analytics in a previous position. I'm not sure that we still have our subscription. I ran some data on households (both of our patrons and non-patrons) for our library district and each of our individual libraries and we used it when planning for our new libraries. This website might help you (though you've probably already seen it): https://www.gale.com/databases/gale-analytics. I'll check into it and get back to you.  Smile
