Organized by the Canadian Association of Research Libraries’ Impact Committee, this webinar will feature a panel of CARL statistics respondents discussing best practices for the CARL Statistics data collection process and tips to help institutions submit their data on time.

The session will be moderated by Katherine McColgan, who will provide a brief history of the CARL statistics program and an overview of modifications to the survey over time (including the most recent version of the survey and its goals). She will also be available to hear feedback from attendees about the challenges they experience and discuss possible solutions CARL can implement to simplify the process.
