Google Analytics Upgrade

Google Analytics Dashboard

All DALNET catalogs in the shared system are now using the new Google Analytics tracking code.  Updates to Google Analytics were required for continued use of the free service.  The upgraded system has new reporting features and custom reports have been scheduled to go out to each DALNET project manager on the first of each month.   If your institution would like additional individuals to receive the reports or if you have Google accounts that you would like assigned to your institution's DALNET Analytics profile, please send the information to dalnet@wayne.edu.

Did you know?

Library's can select specific DALNET eLibrary collections as limits in their catalog.  Take a look at the DALNET Union Catalog for ideas and let us know if you would like any collection limits added to your catalog.
