What is LibInsight?

LibInsight is an online platform developed by Springshare for library data collection and analysis. In 2023 the Library migrated from its homegrown Instruction Statistics Database and the Desk Tracker tool to LibInsight in order to consolidate and streamline assessment activities.

What is it used for?

The Library uses LibInsight for collecting, managing, and reporting statistics on directional inquires, reference interactions, instruction/outreach/engagement, and space usage across the Library.

LibInsight is also used to record statistics for annual reports and surveys including ARL, ACRL, and IPEDS.



Our LibInsight Documentation contains more detailed instructions for using the tool with accompanying screenshots. This is a work in progress and will continue to be updated. Current subjects include:

  • Logging in
  • Recording data
  • Editing individual records
  • Batch entering
  • Bulk uploads
  • Exporting data
  • Analysis
  • Information Services to Groups glossary
