Data-driven library and information research from within the practice
As an increasingly important part of evidence-based practice, data and data analytics are becoming increasingly essential within the Library and information context. In this workshop at ALIA 2022, we will talk about the use of data in all aspects of library and information research and practice, including gathering evidence to inform user services. We, at the ALIA RAC, invite all academics and practitioners from different research fields and library sectors, to come together to collaboratively think about ways through which we can solve real-world problems through data-driven LIS research. This hands-on workshop will include some scenarios and real-life examples on how to use this data (both qualitative and quantitative) in your own everyday professional practice.
