The LACUNY Emerging Technologies Committee is dedicated to collaborative exploration of technologies that further the CUNY libraries’ missions. Through workshops, hack days, demoes, and other meetings, CUNY librarians learn new skills from each other and cultivate a community of openness, sharing, and encouragement.

Years ago I setup event tracking for eResources. It didn’t become useful until recently, when we converted all our proxied links to shortened URLs. It’s much easier to see what databases are being clicked on.

I think that thinking strategically about the scheme of categories and events is going to be a big deal for me, as the choices you make define the kinds of reporting you can get out of GA. The thing I’m wrestling with is how global a category might be…[Read more]

Category: tab box
Labels for everything: “Databases dropdown – articles,” “OneSearch button – books,” “Help – media,” etc.

Is there anyone here who has set up a system of categories, events, labels, and values in Google Analytic event tracking…[Read more]
