Metrics often strike fear into the hearts of librarians and other professionals who are less math minded than, let's say, MBA types. What do I measure? How do I measure? How do I interpret the results? How do I publish my results in a form that my stakeholders will read? As I've mentioned before, counting reference requests, books cataloged, etc. doesn't tell the story that stakeholders want to hear. In fact, I'm not even sure we ever told the story in a meaningful way for stake holders. If you have questions like these check out Jane Dysart's, Dysart & Jones, excellent blog post on the topic of More Metrics.

By today, the ILTA Imagine 2014 Conference is in full swing. If your firm is a member and you've never been to this conference, plan on going next year - even if it means skipping another conference you regularly attend. That is, plan on going if you want to attend a conference that focuses, not just on technology, but on strategy, processes, and more. There aren't a lot of reports coming out of the conference yet but Robert Ambrogi's LawSites' post is noteworthy. Check it out at Microsoft Launches Document Management System for Legal.

NOTE: Microsoft Matter Center for Office 365 is similar to the pioneer cloud document management product, NetDocuments, in that it too is in the cloud but that's where it ends. I know (I'm a client) that NetDocuments, founded 15 years ago, has invested many times over in making improvements to their initial product. Improvements to address firm needs that Microsoft doesn't even know exits.
