Hi! I am Diana Very, director at Three Rivers Regional Library System in SE Georgia. I am really looking forward to this program.


RE: Introductions - RebeccaJones - 07-12-2018

Wow - I'm so honoured to be in this incredible group (note Canadian spelling.....). I'm Rebecca Jones with Dysart & Jones Associates, and most recently (until Dec2018) was Director Branches & Neighbourhood Services with Brampton Library in Ontario, Canada. I've been intrigued and working on performance measures and evaluation models for not-for-profits since 2001 (yep....been around a long time!). So I'm so delighted that public libraries are diving into this data adventure.  I'll be working with you all in Atlanta and am very much looking forward to it!!

I agree with Nancy Logan - spare time? Smile  Family, friends, the gym 4 days/week @ 5:30a.m. (it's a thing for a bunch of us who have worked out together for 30 years....omg....), sewing, oh - and board games!! (including Words with Friends -- anyone play?)


RE: Introductions - lesliempartridge - 07-12-2018

Hi! I'm Leslie Partridge, Assistant Director of Kinchafoonee Regional Library System. Kinchafoonee Regional is a small, rural library system, covering 6 counties, with headquarters in Dawson, GA (about 3 hours south of Atlanta). This is my first time attending RIPL.


RE: Introductions - ShannonSchultz - 07-12-2018

Hi! I'm Shannon Schultz, and I am the public library administration consultant for the state of Wisconsin. Our goal is to create a statewide cohort of RIPL participants to help tackle data and outcomes challenges for public libraries. This is our 3rd year of participants, and 4 of this year's participants are Wisconsin library professionals and first-timers.

I am an avid curler-- in the winter I curl 2 to 4 times per week and in the summer I think about it. It makes those long Wisconsin winters go by really fast! I also love to kayak, have a love-hate relationship with golf, I travel, and I enjoy good beer and wine. I cherish my Wisconsin Badger Men's Hockey season tickets and spending time indoors and out with my husband, daughter, dog (soon to be dogs), and cat.

RE: Introductions - baustinnpl - 07-12-2018

My name is Brodie Austin. I am the Assistant Director at the Northbrook Public Library in Northbrook, Illinois (a suburb north of Chicago). My exposure to data largely comes through things like Google Analytics, which I've used to assess websites. I also have designed some surveys for the library. I'm looking forward to learning how libraries are being more data-literate and hope there are some ideas I can bring back to my library.
