  1. Introductions
    1. Steve Van Tuyl & Hui Zhang (OSU) – want a reporting dashboard for pulling down stats on sets of works. Want to see widgets on reporting dashboard actually work. What kind of analytics do we want to see on a Work 
    2. Nik Dragovic (Emory) – want some native analytics capability on Hyrax. also involved in DLF analytics related working groups
    3. Hannah Frost (Stanford) – hybox has analytics high on their list of functionality to add to hyku (make it easier to configure than currently) and has some requirements articulated around analytics for their project. There are backlogged hyku issues available for reference and review
    4. Gabriela Montoya (UCSD) - have a requirement for statistical reporting (ARL and UCOP) and currently have issues that are related. Already capturing analytics using GA and server logs in local DAMS. Go on their own with Hyrax based app or wait for the community solution?
      1. Github tickets for Hyrax app:
    5. Leah Vanderjagt and Weiwei Shi (Alberta) - have had interest in improving stats reporting for item level, collections and for administrator for a while. We have had some discussion of using a gemified approach to analytics and have begun to write new user stories. Also, have specific initiatives in mind that are relevant:
      1. RAMP - 
      2. IRUS - UK service for collecting and cleaning log files. Many IR managers are interested in approaching stats compilation and reporting in a platform-agnostic way, but if the IRUS approach is useful it could be something that may be helpful across the Samvera community
