In an age of dwindling staff and resources, school libraries need to be able to demonstrate their value to a wide variety of stakeholders. Stakeholders may include teachers, parents, and students in addition to school administration. This session will focus on defining, collecting, and communicating demonstrable value metrics through the creation of an integrated library dashboard using a variety of data visualization tools. Attendees should expect to improve their knowledge of available tools and to obtain concrete strategies for how best to utilize those tools in order to tell a compelling story about the benefits and successes of their school library.
