Session Description

With so much data available to librarians, how does one know which data to pay attention to? Most vendor systems now come with analytics functionality, publishers are by and large COUNTER compliant, and an abundance of data management tools empower everyone to jump into the deep end. This presentation will cover the different developmental phases passed through en route to a sustainable assessment regime at a smaller university library. Lessons learned about culture, workflows, and various relationships forged will be complemented by a show-and-tell of bespoke interactive tools developed locally for front-line librarians and university administrators.
