You’ve probably heard a lot of “futurists” talk about data, but it’s not always clear how data relate to our day to day work in libraries.
Why are data important, and what’s the big deal? Data are not just spreadsheets and numbers, but come in many different shapes, colors, and flavors! In this presentation, we will give an introduction to data, talk about why it is relevant, and demonstrate how to and use data in practical situations. We will also provide innovative examples that will inspire you to connect with your colleagues and patrons!
