Are you a librarian who wants to use data to support analysis of your library’s collection, but you're not sure where to start? Do you want to build a better understanding of processes that many researchers use in their own work? Or, are you a vendor who wonders what librarians actually do with that data you provide? If yes, this may be the preconference session for you!

Focusing on understanding library collections, we will talk about project organization and planning, discuss tactics for dealing with common collections data issues, share potential project ideas, and provide a basic overview of the R programming language and how it can be used to analyze data.

Attendees will leave the workshop prepared to plan their own collection analysis project, recommend best practices for data sharing and reusable research, and identify the potential benefits of using R for their work.
