Conversation Starter: Data for Librarians Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

In an era of tight budgets and finite resources libraries are using data to make decisions and justify the spending of time and money. Many librarians don’t come from a data heavy background and are unsure of how to approach collecting the data they need or evaluating the data they already have. You don’t have to be a math whiz to work with data! This session will give a librarian friendly crash course in what data is, how to collect reliable data, and how to interpret it.

This panel discussion is intended for those who are interested in moving into management positions, as well as new library administrators facing similar issues. Panelists include academic library directors Jacob Berg and Jessica Olin, and public library administrators Kristi Chadwick and John Pappas. Daniel Ransom will moderate.
