The Library Impact Data Project (LIDP) was a Jisc funded project, led by Computing and Library Services at the University of Huddersfield, which ran from 2011-2012.

Phase I of LIDP showed a statistically significant relationship across a number of universities between library activity data and student attainment.

Phase II sought to deepen our understanding of this relationship by investigating additional data from the University of Huddersfield in order to understand better how library activity relates to student attainment, including causal relationships.

This paper will highlight some of the results from our analysis, such demographic factors, discipline and retention issues. It will then discuss some of the practical implications for collection management and development.

Finally the paper will introduce the new Jisc Library Analytics and Metrics Project (LAMP), which aims to develop a prototype shared library analytics service for UK academic libraries.
