Many academic libraries look to standardize internal data collection to improve data-driven decision making and library advocacy. However, methods for data gathering, storage, and use vary tremendously. Resources from research data management (RDM) services can provide tools and solutions. This program will review current challenges, recommend RDM best practices that can apply, identify where additional policies may be necessary, and highlight larger ethical issues around patron privacy. Implementation experiences for academic institutions will be shared.
