LLAMA webinar shows how data promotes interdepartmental partnerships

While many academic libraries host external campus departments, it is less common for libraries to work with these departments to create and offer integrated services.  Careful planning is critical to their success and includes not only communication between different units, but also thorough assessment and data gathering.  The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Using Data to Facilitate Interdepartmental Partnerships,” on Wed., June 11 at 1:30 – 3:00 PM (Central time).

This webinar will showcase, via a case study, the importance and practical use of data collection within academic library public services. It will highlight how data has been used to develop integrated services of two separate academic departments.

Webinar participants will:

  • understand the value of data-driven decision making and assessment practices.
  • identify relevant tools to help gather data for their own projects
  • begin to consider integrated service opportunities and planning components

Target audience:  Academic library administrators and middle managers

Presenters:  Hector Escobar, Director of Education & Information Delivery, University of Dayton Roesch Library;  Heidi Gauder, Coordinator of Research & Instruction, University of Dayton Roesch Library
