As pressure increases for librarians and administrators to demonstrate the value of academic libraries, there is a parallel concern regarding student data privacy in terms of learning analytics and other data tracking methods used by universities. The intersection where demonstrating the value of academic libraries meets student privacy is a crucial, controversial, and timely debate for our profession. This contributed paper provides an overview of the debate about student privacy and library research projects, a discussion of the evolution of our study, the next steps we will take as a result of our work, and recommendations for others who aspire to do this type of project.
