Title: Arctos Collection Metrics and Data Quality Improvement Tools
Date: Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Time: 3pm ET
Abstract: Arctos, an online collaborative museum collection management solution, is capable of providing its users with an infinite variety of metrics. Collection statistics, reporting features, data quality feedback and discovery tools aid Arctos users in improving data and quantifying collections use and impact.
In this presentation, we will demonstrate some of the Arctos metrics and tools currently available as well as highlight the “Low Quality Data Dashboard.” Still in its infancy, this dashboard compiles data improvement opportunities for Arctos users, including automated suggestions to enhance data integrity and linkages. Many of these tools were initially developed by request in isolation from one another and placed in proximity to the data tables that they summarize. Ultimately, the Arctos community plans to bring these dispersed performance metrics together in a centralized dashboard to help Arctos collections better comprehend, visualize, and communicate their holdings and activities, both quantitatively and qualitatively. We invite suggestions and feedback for any metrics or enhancements users would like to see implemented to achieve these aims.
[Note: this webinar will recap themes from the SPNHC 2019 talk, "Success Metrics in Arctos (and what we hope to build)", with live demonstrations of tools]
