We're also using Google Analytics with ArchivesSpace.  I'm attaching a PDF of our custom dashboard (in UA) which shows events tracking views of 1) digital object records, 2) digital objects, and 3) resource records.  You can also see user search terms in this dashboard.  (Unfortunately, GA4 does not currently support adding the custom query parameter used by ArchivesSpace, so no more search term tracking with GA4!)

HI Jennifer

Yep. You need a plugin to do it, but its a super simple plugin. Here's what we use at Dartmouth. https://github.com/dartmouth-dltg/aspace_analytics as an example.

Does anyone use Google Analytics to count how many times people look at your finding aids (using the PUI)? Is this even possible?
