While collections dashboards are often used as an external communications tool, they have additional applications for improving internal processes and assisting subject selectors. The result of a collaboration between a subject selector, data librarian, and collection development librarian, this presentation focuses on the identification of data sources, the process of parsing collection data by subject area, and practical visualizations to support evidence-based decision making in subject collection development. Of particular interest to attendees may be visualization techniques for linking multiple data sources, from acquisitions data to holdings data, publisher provided usage data and library collected user experience data. Using Tableau, the presenters have developed dashboard frameworks to support collections decision making.
