CHICAGO "Statistics and Reports: Data-Driven Decision-Making," an Annual Conference Preconference from the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), explores the options for making more decisions based on discoverable statistics and reports. 

This preconference seeks to answer several questions: 

  • What data is collected in technical services?
  • Why is the information collected?
  • How is the data collected and what reports can be generated?
  • How can the data be used to analyze collections, workflow and positions?

Speakers: Michael Levine-Clark, associate dean for scholarly communication, University of Denver; Kari Swanson, chief acquisitions librarian, Yale University; Beth Bernhardt, assistant dean for collection management and scholarly communications, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
