Effective data analysis can support much decision-making in the library, however, it can be challenging to ensure that you’ve captured all the data you need. At the same time, it is possible to collect too much data that ultimately can overwhelm those tasked with analysis. This presentation will discuss how to create a strategy for gathering and reporting analytics in three parts: framing the questions that are important to answer, auditing all potential points where data is collected, and evaluating which data should ultimately be considered for analysis and visualization.
