SAGE Publications is in the process of starting to put together a large collection of many 100s of teaching datasets that can enable faculty, new researchers and students to teach or self-teach across a wide range of many 100s of analytic techniques. The collection will cover quantitative and qualitative data, but comes with many developmental challenges in terms of working out how to best develop different datasets to showcase markedly different methodological techniques and to do so in way that is easy to understand, easy to use and, perhaps, even fun for the user. This paper will summarise the challenges that the editorial team face in pulling together what will be an unprecedentedly large collection of teaching datasets and will canvas audience feedback on what might be seen as must-have or best practice from a librarian and library-user perspective. This aims to be an open-minded session and an opportunity for delegates to work closely with a publisher on thinking through some difficult yet important issues at the very start of a new project.
