CELUS at the Charleston Conference 2023

November 29, 2023

The Charleston Conference is an annual gathering that brings together librarians, publishers, and vendors from around the world to discuss the latest trends and challenges in the field of library science. This highly anticipated event provides a platform for professionals to exchange ideas, share best practices, and explore innovative solutions.

The Charleston Conference 2023 was no exception, attracting a diverse audience of librarians, researchers, and industry experts. The conference featured a wide range of sessions and workshops, covering topics such as collection development, digital preservation, and open access. Among the highlights of the conference was the presentation by the CELUS team, who introduced their revolutionary e-resources usage data analysis software to an enthusiastic crowd.

CELUS Team's Presentation at the Conference

The CELUS team's presentation at the Charleston Conference 2023 was met with great anticipation. The team, comprised of industry experts and software engineers, showcased the innovative features and functionalities of CELUS software. Their presentation highlighted the software's intuitive interface, powerful algorithms, and real-time analytics capabilities.

One of the key features that captured the audience's attention was the ability of CELUS software to track usage patterns across various e-resource platforms. Librarians can now gain valuable insights into which resources are being accessed the most, how often they are being used, and by whom. This information enables librarians to make data-driven decisions about resource acquisition, allocation, and retention.

The CELUS team also emphasized the software's user-friendly interface, which streamlines workflows and increases efficiency for librarians. With just a few clicks, librarians can access comprehensive usage reports, generate visualizations, and export data for further analysis. This level of convenience and ease-of-use sets CELUS apart from other data analysis tools in the market.

Case Studies of Libraries Using CELUS Software - a presentation

Libraries worldwide have already experienced the transformative power of CELUS software in optimizing their e-resource collections. Case studies and success stories abound, highlighting the positive impact that CELUS has had on library operations and user satisfaction.

One such example is the University of Central Florida, which saw a significant increase in the usage of its e-resource collections after implementing CELUS software. By analyzing usage data, the library was able to identify resources that were underutilized and reallocate funds to acquire more relevant materials. This resulted in higher user engagement, increased resource usage, and improved user satisfaction, as described by Athena Hoeppner, Discovery Services Librarian at UCF in a presentation called "COUNTER Usage Reports: Doing More with More".

Another success story comes from the Georgetown University Library, which used CELUS software to identify trends in user behavior and tailor its e-resource collections accordingly. By analyzing usage data, the library discovered that there was a growing demand for resources in a particular subject area. Armed with this information, "the library was able to acquire more resources in that subject area, leading to increased user satisfaction and improved resource utilization", says Mark Winek, Unit Head of Electronic Resources & Serials at Georgetown University Library.

These case studies and success stories demonstrate the tangible benefits of using CELUS software in optimizing e-resource collections. By harnessing the power of data, libraries can make informed decisions that enhance the user experience, increase resource usage, and maximize the impact of their collections.

Future Developments and Updates for CELUS Software

CELUS is continuously working on enhancing its software to meet the evolving needs of librarians and the changing landscape of e-resource management. The company is committed to staying at the forefront of data analysis technology, incorporating the latest advancements into its software to provide librarians with the most robust and efficient tools.

One area of focus for CELUS is the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms into its software. By leveraging these technologies, CELUS aims to further automate the data analysis process, enabling librarians to gain valuable insights with minimal effort. The software will be able to identify usage patterns, recommend resource acquisitions, and predict future trends, empowering librarians to make data-driven decisions with even greater accuracy and efficiency.

CELUS is also exploring partnerships with publishers and vendors to expand the scope of its software. By collaborating with industry stakeholders, CELUS aims to integrate additional data sources into its software, providing librarians with a more comprehensive view of their e-resource collections. This integration will enable librarians to analyze usage data across different platforms, identify gaps in their collections, and make informed decisions about resource acquisition and retention.
