Relieving Libraries' Culture-Data Tension with a Data Lake

Wednesday, October 31 | 4:15PM–5:00PM MT | Board 104, Poster Area, Exhibit Hall B-E
Session Type: Poster Session
We will discuss how to create a data-informed, decision-making culture in a large, complex academic library by sharing strategies to obtain administrative support, promote data-savvy and staff buy-in, and translate assessment into action using centralized insights from an enterprise wiki, which supplies performance metrics, tools, reports, dashboards, and user stories.

Outcomes: Develop a strategy to obtain buy-in and administrative support and resources * Use an enterprise wiki to centralize static and dynamic data from disparate resources via APIs and other resources to create data visualizations * Learn how to centralize data, reveal insights, make decisions, and track outcomes
