Are you ever asked to report about library space usage using only door count? Or, are you paying for a generic people count system?  B.D. Owens Library, at Northwest Missouri State University, partnered with our School of Computer Science and Information Systems to develop a homegrown people-count system utilizing student interns.  Our “Head Count” program has expanded our ability to demonstrate more than just how many visitors come and go, but how many visitors come and stay. This session will cover the light-bulb moment, partnering efforts between departments, intern supervisory challenges, the implementation process, the impact of the data, and future plans for the program. Session attendees will be able to view our program in action and view sample reports we are able to generate from the data.
