Toot Your Own Horn Preview - Jim DelRosso

“Plural of Anecdote: Assessing the Success of a Digital Repository” will be presented by Jim DelRosso at the April 8th UNYSLA meeting, "Toot Your Own Horn."  Here is a preview:

Anyone who's taken a stats class -- and plenty of other folks besides -- knows the danger of relying on unsupported anecdotal evidence. Yet the data available to us through our myriad assessment tools often proves ineffective or disconnected without the context provided by a strong narrative. This session will discuss how the Web & Digital Projects Group at Cornell University's Catherwood Library seeks to find a balance, using stories and data analysis to not only assess the success of DigitalCommons@ILR and their other projects, but also define what success means for those projects.
