Creating Your Library’s Data Roadmap
Just like a good map, this session will provide a guide to getting to your library’s data destination. The data roadmap is a systematic plan for identifying, collecting, and reporting data to meet your organization’s evaluation, planning, and communication needs. After learning about the building blocks of a good data plan, real-world examples and strategies will be shared by public librarians, including techniques for implementing a data plan and getting staff buy-in. Putting theory into practice, participants will apply their newfound knowledge by working together to create a data roadmap.
