27 Jul 11 New ALA Connect Reports

ALA Connect experienced a couple of major milestones during the last few months. First, it turned two-years old at the beginning of April 2011, and then the new servers valiantly weathered a huge spike in usage thanks to the 2011 ALA Annual Conference. To monitor Connect’s progress, I’ve written up reports for each milestone.

To summarize, Connect usage is consistent, and I think the numbers show that the majority of active committee members are using the site. We also saw a lot more non-committee members and non-ALA members log in during May and June because of the newly integrated Conference Scheduler. So far, feedback on the Scheduler has been very positive.

As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions for ALA Connect.

Although we had some server downtime in the run up to Midwinter, the response we received to the Scheduler itself has been overwhelmingly positive.

To help assess usage of it and study behavior around the sessions themselves, we’ve posted a summary report at

We have big plans for phase 2 of the Annual Scheduler, so please continue to submit your feedback and suggestions.
