Heatmaps of Key Library Pages: Spring 2011
What is this? This page presents heatmaps showing usage trends on several library web pages during spring 2011.
What is a heatmap? Heatmaps are a graphical representation of where patrons clicked when visiting a web page. Cool colors mean fewer clicks, and warm colors
mean more clicks.
How did we make heatmaps? We followed steps outlined in the blog post "The definitive heatmap" to create our heatmaps. This method uses javascript, Ruby and
RMagick.
