Join the Minnesota Digital Library’s Metadata Librarian for an overview of one of her recently completed projects. Greta Bahnemann will provide an in-depth explanation of her recent collection gap analysis work for the Minnesota Digital Library’s Minnesota Reflections database. Beginning with a review of the written report, Greta will expand her presentation to include a discussion of her methodology, including the use of Google Analytics, and present the initial set of recommendations for future growth and expansion. The presentation will also include a discussion of the limitations of this kind of work, and the proactive strategies employed to reduce the subjective nature of collection analysis work. The session will conclude with strategies for getting started on conducting your own collection gap analysis and developing new strategies for collection growth and expansion.
