Session Description: In everything from collection management to journal evaluation, libraries are engaging in evidence-based decision making, but do they have all the evidence? Comparing JR1 and JR5 reports already tells an interesting story, but what happens when you factor in additional data points such as citations, publications and open access? This pre-conference will give participants an in-depth understanding of how different data sets may be combined to form a truly robust body of evidence and provide insights on how the data may be analysed to support a variety of applications including collection management, journal assessment, license negotiations and open access strategies. Two librarians will illustrate how they have used enriched data to support strategic decisions related to Open Access, journal cancellations, and more at their institutions.
