Systems & Web Applications Librarian, Beatley Library, Simmons College
Inform data-driven decision making by using an online dashboard to easily collect, organize, and share valuable library statistics. Each year, the staff at Simmons College Library generates statistical reports based on the previous year’s library services and collection development. Recently, college-wide assessment has become more important to informing its projects and day-to-day work. As part of this initiative, the library has developed a thoughtful data collection strategy using Zoho Creator as a statistics management tool. The library plans to share statistics with patrons and stakeholders through a lightweight, dynamic online dashboard built to visualize data stored in a Google spreadsheet using Sheetsee.js. Come see a preview of its online dashboard and learn how you can implement a similar strategy at your library.
