A Toolkit for Taking Stock: Libraries Leverage New Metrics Driven by Data from collectionHQ

ILLUSTRATION BY HANK OSUNA ©2012

CHQ can extract data from any integrated library system (ILS) and then, through a suite of web-based modules, create a data-driven plan to build and deploy a library’s physical collection. CHQ makes clear what materials to buy and in what quantity to meet patron demand. It also makes transfers among branches and weeding quick, evidence-based activities.
