Measuring for Success using Data Visualization
Does looking at your library’s usage statistics make your head spin? Libraries often collect dozens of outputs every month yet wonder what they actually communicate about meaningful impact. As traditional measures of success like circulation decline, librarians are left wondering what will take their place. We will take a look at how to first define the measures that work for your library and then explore easy ways to visually communicate data to community stakeholders.
In this workshop you will learn:
What you might want to measure
How to measure it
How to visually communicate the statistics
Presenter: Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz, Director, Lorain Public Library System and formerKnowledge Manager at Cleveland Public Library focused on helping librarians become more data literate and understand the impact of data on libraries. She has presented on data visualization and measuring outcomes in public libraries.
