SUNYLA Midwinter Online Conference
Library Data: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
Friday, February 3, 2023
Library data is something that we all have to deal with – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes it can be fun and exciting when you have an interesting story to tell. Other times, it can be terrifying sifting through old forgotten admin logins and new report layouts. As with much of our work, we train ourselves on the data as we go.
Are you passionate about data? Do you have any amazing data tools that you’re excited to show off? Do you have interesting ways of using data for assessment and communicating to different audiences? This conference is for you! The SUNYLA Midwinter Online Conference planning committee is seeking proposals from presenters looking to share their expertise in gathering, analyzing, and/or presenting library data in its myriad forms.
Some possible presentations could include:
- COUNTER 5
- Vendor-produced reports
- Integrating data from multiple platforms
- Data visualization
- Google Analytics
- Uncommon or unusual sources of data
- Using data for assessment
- Communicating library data to various stakeholders
And beyond! The possibilities are endless!
Come share your experiences with your supportive and non-judgmental library colleagues at the SUNYLA Midwinter Online Conference on Friday, February 3, 2023 (10:00am – 2:30pm EST).
Presentations should be 15-20 minutes in length, in a format that best suits your topic.
Technology requirements: Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone, quiet space for presenting, webcam optional.
Accepting proposals until Friday, December 2, 2022. You do not need to be a SUNYLA member in order to attend or present at this FREE conference. Those who submit proposals should expect to hear back from us regarding their proposals by early January if not sooner. Please submit your proposal here: https://forms.gle/gcWBQ6dhqwqvsgH48
