This webinar will provide an overview of a LYRASIS Catalyst grant winner for a Quantitative Institute for Libraries (QUIL), which was held in Pittsburgh, PA in May of 2019. We will describe our inspiration for the Institute, how we planned and organized for the event, what challenges we faced, and what content we covered. We will also discuss attendee feedback and ideas for future iterations of QUIL.
