Statistics are necessary to measure the usage of acquired materials. However, visualizing those statistics is often difficult due to daunting amounts of raw data. A dashboard was created in order to compile and simplify usage statistics from library material that includes e-journals, databases, and e-books, as well as facts related to print periodicals. Using Google Sites as the home for the dashboard webpage, usage statistics are readily available to librarians from any location.
