After months of installing, moving (and moving) the traffic counters for the library patron report, we finally got them working and collecting proper data. We have the counters on eight different locations in the library: Main Entrance, Everett Cafe, 2nd Floor, 3rd Floor, 2nd Floor Stacks, 3rd Floor Stacks, 4th Floor Stacks and 5th Floor Stacks.
Below are the sets of data we are currently reporting in the reports. As we continue to think about how we can use data to inform much of the work we do here at the EdLab, what are some data you think will be useful or interesting to include in the patron traffic report.
-Proportions of Total Traffic through the Sections of the Library
-Total Patronage of all Sections of the Library for any give time
-Average Daily Patronage of All Sections of the Library for each Month
-Total Weekly Patronage
-Total Weekly Patronage of the Main Sections of the Library
