Beyond the ordinary

This final chapter draws together the themes touched on throughout the book, discussing the non-technical barriers to improved data usage outcomes. The chapter underlines the urgency of the need to revisit how libraries are using data, and for what purpose. A case is made for the necessity of taking a much more scientific approach to managing operations, and also the need to take a more scientific approach to the use of data to justify strategy. The author provides an example of a way forward by referring back to previous chapters that outlined the technical possibilities of what can be done with data, and how this can improve operational management and strategic choices.
