18 April 2013 |"Collective Insight—Driven by Shared Data"
44th Annual Colorado ILL Conference, Cheyenne Mountain Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado
In recent years organizations have begun utilizing data in new and exciting ways. Phrases like "linked data," "big data," and "data visualization" have permeated these discussions, signaling a broader trend toward data-driven insight and integration of libraries into the wider Web. Data is an essential driver of success. What do we know about our collections and resources, who uses them, and how? In this session, Eric Forte, OCLC Member Services Consultant, discussed how we share and use data within the library community and the information industry to gain greater insight, and how we utilize this data to reach out our users on the Web.
