Visualize your community’s current library activity and better meet their needs.
Segment households in your library’s service area (patrons and nonpatrons) based on interest, income, presence of children, and more. As change happens over time, your library can better understand and visualize your community’s current library activity, and see how to effectively meet its needs.
For those focused on equity of access in their communities, users have the ability to understand their demographic reach by combining a census map of race/ethnicity by tract with variables such as education level, household income, and checkout volume.
Gale Analytics effortlessly merges your library’s integrated library system (ILS) data with Mosaic® segmentation from Experian and other datasets. Using dashboards in Tableau Reader, users can segment households based on demographic and lifestyle criteria—drilling down into rich visuals, dynamic maps, and downloadable custom mailing lists based on segmentation.
