Data Driven Innovation: Starting with Community Needs with Tim Diamond and Anastassia Diamond Ortiz
How does a library decidewhen to offer something new? What about tweaking existing collections and services? Can a library have it all figured out? Join us as we discuss data driven innovation processes and decision-making informed by design thinking and how these ideas can benefit your libraries communities. Bring a burning question about your library's services or community for discussion.
