While Google Analytics is synonymous with Web Analytics, fortunately today we have many other good options, and one option is Piwik, [|] a simple to install, open-source PHP/MySQL application with a tracking script that will sit alongside Google Analytics tracking the usual clicks, events and variables. In this presentation, I'd like to cover the usual analytics topics and also cover what makes Piwik powerful, such as importing and visualizing web logs from any system to incorporate both past and future data, easily tracking downloads, and the ability to write your own reports or dashboard. The visitor log data is stored securely on your own server so you have control over who looks at the data and how much or how little to keep. With an active and helpful developer community, Piwik has the potential for analytics which makes sense for libraries, not e-commerce.

Oslo Public Library has converted the entire MARC-catalogue to RDF via the self-made conversion tool MARC2RDF.
[|], the enriched RDF version of the library catalogue including its authority files, forms the basis for two different mashups; The Active shelf and the Book recommendation database. The RDF catalogue is linked with various content and the dataset is updated daily to account for additions, deletions and changes made in the MARC catalogue.
[| The Active shelf] is a physical touchscreen device that makes use of open source software, RFID technology, RDF data and external web service APIs to provide information about any library book a patron is curious to know more about.
The Book recommendations database stores book recommendations written by library staff from all over Norway and links them to the RDF-representation of the MARC-catalogue.
