Beyond library budgets and content usage reports, libraries and consortia are searching, sorting, managing, and hunting for deep data that allows them to understand their environments and represent themselves and their patrons more effectively in these changing and complicated times. But data challenges exist at every turn. Finding data, which is often housed in a variety of disparate sources, is the first challenge but it is immediately followed by measuring, adapting, and distilling data down to the most important factors. Libraries and consortia spend many person hours gathering data from scratch and then deriving information and knowledge from that data to make informed, evidence-based decisions.

In this session, we will hear from leading library experts about their scholarly publishing data hunting expeditions and the innovative ways they access and utilize deep data to inform their discussions and decisions and support their activities.
