    "Streamlining Researcher Registration"
    The 2018 Standardized Measures and Metrics inspired Towson University's Special Collections and University Archives to reevaluate how we were gathering information about our researchers. We updated the form we had been using to gather more information in a more efficient way. I will discuss those changes, and some of the challenges this data has presented for library assessment.

    "Technology, Tools, and Time: Implementing the SAA/ACRL-RBMS Standardized Measures and Metrics for Public Services in Archival Repositories and Special Collections Libraries at Georgia Tech"
    The Georgia Tech Archives and Special Collections started implementing the SAA/ACRL-RBMS Standardized Measures and Metrics for Public Services in Archival Repositories and Special Collections Libraries in 2019. Implementation occurred slowly in stages determined by institutional priorities, staff buy-in and training, departmental restructuring, and changes in library-owned technology and tools available for data collection. The statistics and metrics gathered through the use of these guidelines has helped us make data-driven decisions, increased the visibility of archival work within the library, and helped show our department's impact to library and institute administration. This presentation will discuss the stages of implementation, various tools used to collect and manage data, including Aeon, Jira, Confluence, and Excel spreadsheets, and next steps as we move towards an increasingly digital environment.

    Want to present at our next webinar? Submit a proposal for July or August by July 2, 2021.
