Tracking Queries to Influence Selections
Dec 05, 2012 Elise C

Given that we have a powerful search tool connected to our library system catalog, is there a way that the search words, queries, and topics can be tracked and filtered (not the users doing the searches, just the search words themselves), and possibly then indexed by our library catalogers into broader groupings? Then those groupings could be used to help influence selections and book purchasing. Terms, fields, authors which generate a lot of searches could be more heavily weighted in selections and purchasing.
