Library assessment is an essential part of library planning and management. It helps us make informed decisions about collections, operating hours, events, and more. However, moving past collecting data to analyzing it can be challenging. This presentation will share how a librarian at Juniata College used R statistical software to analyze information gathered by our student workers to assess library space and resource usage. R is a free, open source software environment that you can use for statistical analysis and creating visualizations. The presenter is a novice R user, and this presentation is geared towards those with little to no experience using R, but with takeaways that may be useful for more experienced R users.

Sara Kern is the Student Success & Outreach Librarian at Juniata College.

As a reminder, the Zoom link will be sent approximately 48 hours before the session. We will mute participants on entry into the Zoom room. Session will be recorded and available on YouTube after the session. We will enable Zoom’s Live Transcription feature during the session.

If you would like to present with C&CS, please contact the C&CS team.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.

Support is also provided by the College and Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association.
