How do you combine circ stats, cost information, and other pieces of data to help allocate acquisitions funds? With Excel! Join us for a half-day, hands-on workshop on some of the pertinent features of Excel and how you can use it to create an allocation formula that is easy to understand and to communicate to stakeholders. “Why did we put so much money into Topic X? Let me show you.” Bring your own stats to work with or use sample data provided at the session; we’ll start working on them right then and there.
