Farmer, Lesley S. and Alan M. Safer. Library Improvement through Data Analytics. Neal-Schuman, 2016. ISBN: 978-0-8389-1425-0


Description
Use of data to make the case for library services is more important than ever. This book introduces the basics of the Six Sigma framework, a data-driven management system, as a model that can be applied to a variety of library settings. It covers basic statistical concepts, sources of data, application of appropriate analysis methods, and offers case studies to explore areas such as e-book collection development and reference.

Table of Contents
A detailed table of contents is available on the LIS Collection blog: http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/2016/06/library-improvement-through-data.html

If you would like to request this or other materials from the Oregon State Library please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form).  Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-serve basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks.

Most library staff are able to use their library's interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me<mailto:arlene.weible at state.or.us> to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.
