Institutional Research Interest Group


The Institutional Research Interest Group serves as a forum for discussing issues related to the use of data in decision-making at the institutional level, the role of librarians in data stewardship on their campuses, and the ways in which library data are included in data tools consulted by senior academic leaders in operational and strategic decisions at the campus level, e.g., data warehouses, dashboards, advising systems.
