Power Up Reports With Google
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Presented by Lynn Hoffman, Director of Operations, Somerset County Library System of New Jersey
Google Sheets includes a variety of lesser-known tools that can help you power up your library’s reports, including conditional formatting and basic scripting. This webinar will cover strategies and approaches you can use to automate regular reporting and analytical tasks, such as scheduling updates to data used for periodic circulation tasks, and pulling data from emailed reports into a spreadsheet. Use your new knowledge to impress your colleagues with fancy, on-demand reports.
Lynn Hoffman has worn a wide variety of hats throughout her twenty-plus year public library career, but has found her niche in administration, implementing big ideas on the front lines at the assistant director level at several large public library systems in the Midwest. She is also a self-professed data nerd and wannabe coder, and loves finding ways to make it easy for her colleagues to gain new insights from the data we already collect. Lynn is currently Director of Operations at the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey and served on the Public Library Association’s Measurement, Evaluation and Assessment Committee.
This webinar is offered as part of the quarterly Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) webinar series.
