Presentation 1
Assessing Digital Library Users and Reuses through Reverse Image Lookup: A Case Study
The presenters will review how they used reverse image lookup technology to assess the users and reuses of images from the Library of Congress’s Teaching with Primary Resources digital collection. The results of this study support the idea that personal users and reuses are legitimate factors when assessing digital libraries.
Presenters: Michele Reilly, Santi Thompson

Presentation 2
Improving the Reported Use and Impact of Your Institutional Repository (IR)
The value proposition of institutional repositories (IR) is built largely on the number of publication downloads they sustain. This session demonstrates that IR using page tagging analytics (e.g. Google Analytics, WebTrends) underreport as much as 60% of their publication downloads and offers recommendations for improving the accuracy of reporting.
Presenters: Patrick OBrien, Kenning Arlitsch

Presentation 3
Impacts that Matter: Assessment Beyond Clicks, Likes, and Downloads
The presentation will: 1. Provide an overview of ethnographic archives, their users and uses; 2. Evaluate relevant frameworks, methods, and published studies on impact assessment; and, finally, 3. Discuss implications of the five areas of impact (Knowledge, Discourse, Attitudes, Capacity and Policy) in assessing digital library research and practice.
Presenter: Ricardo Punzalan
