What's the Deal with Public Library Collection


Edmonton Public Library’s Collections Assessment and Trends Intern Librarians will tell you how they found a way to turn collections data into meaningful information. The presenters will share findings from their research of EPL's physical and digital collections (including user analyses, floating, and interlibrary loan), and discuss how emerging trends in relevant industries might impact public libraries.
Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insight into shifting collection usage and trends.
  • Learn ways to contextualize and analyze quantitative library data.
  • Consider more than circulation statistics to ensure decisions are community-led.
