The 2018 class of ALA Emerging Leaders was charged with identifying data competency training resources for the Public Library Association. It has become increasingly important for library professionals to be able to gather, analyze and communicate data in order to navigate a data-rich world and make data-driven decisions related to funding, policies and other resources needed to support the communities you serve. Learn how the website created by the Emerging Leaders serves as a professional development guide that can help move library staff toward becoming more data competent.

The main focus of the webinar will be on the steps required to develop, launch, and evaluate library policies and procedures. There will be examples of how this workflow can be organized and participants will be given access to materials that offer concrete steps that they can then use at their own institutions.
