I just finished Library Journals Equity in Action training for auditing your collection
Audrey Stewart
01:06:25
and as far as numbers go, they matter and then they don't :)
Audrey Stewart
01:09:04
You are welcome!
Audrey Stewart
01:09:37
Yes! I agree.
Shaun Bennett
01:09:44
I've been working with education grad students, and trying to introduce some data literacy around the data they themselves are generating through literature searches and reviews. It's very basic, but they seem to like it.
Shaun Bennett
01:10:10
Absolutely!
Brandy Burbante
01:10:55
with trying to be more aware of collecting data for assessment of library instruction, we started using Project Outcome https://acrl.projectoutcome.org/
Morgan Ritchie-Baum
01:11:37
And there is a Public version too!
Audrey Stewart
01:11:57
does anyone use LibInsights? from SpringShare
Audrey Stewart
01:12:18
very cool; we just got it.
Audrey Stewart
01:12:21
Still figuring it out :)
Alison Messier
01:12:45
I think it's important to be humble, as both Nancy and Morgan have alluded to in their presentation, that we as librarians aren't going to be able to be all to all folks looking for assistance with data. And we can't do the analysis, but we can help with questions about how to interpret and be curious about data.
Pam Barnard
01:13:11
I don't get too involved in systematic reviews in my job, but some health science librarians do and part of what some of them do is help manage the various parts of documenting search strategies and managing the references.
Lauren Phegley
01:13:13
I am working with my department (academic) to revamp our workshops and this is a very helpful resource - http://www.datainfolit.org/dilguide/
