Moving from PDA Pilots to Sustainable Programs: Making Data-Driven Decisions

Monday, April 2, 2012 at 2:05 PM–2:50 PM Central Time (US & Canada)
Salon D/E

#datadriven #erl12


Collection Development and Assessment


PDA, "data-driven decision making"

Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to use data to make more informed decisions, and use our library's experiences to assess their library's pilots and programs.


CSU Fullerton has run two PDA pilots : EBL ebooks, and the CCC’s Get It Now. Although pleased with the outcomes, we needed to control costs. Look at our data, brainstorm ideas for how to use it, and see what we did. Take home ideas for your library!
