Description

We will be using our own development project, The Reading List for Life, as a case study and launching point for discussion of  the messy, sometimes confusing process of transforming big data into usable learning tools for libraries. As we move further into the age of big data this process is becoming an increasingly necessary undertaking. This session will have three parts: (1) explanation of our process for transforming big data into a usable tool, (2) practical skill-building exercises for enabling participants to undertake projects of their own (e.g. parsing data, defining usability), and (3) practice of critical skills for participants to assess the limits of any big data set. Our session will be a highly interactive session, and participants will be asked to work with other attendees to solve design problems.
