As library resources become more limited each year, assessment becomes increasingly important. Library assessment may be strategic or occur at the point of need and can be as elaborate as a space study or as simple as a focus group. In its many forms, assessment generates data that needs to be analyzed, shared, and stored.
How should I start my assessment? What tools are the best for my project? How can I communicate my results effectively? What are the barriers to my assessment? How can I better manage my library data? NMLA invites you to discuss these questions and more. Members may now join the newly formed Assessment & Statistics special interest group. If you’re interested in assessment as a means of demonstrating your library’s value, improving your collections & services, and better understanding the needs/user experience of your patrons, this group is for you. You do not need to be an assessment and/or data wizard to join!
To join the Assessment & Statistics SIG, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject “Join Assessment & Statistics SIG.” This SIG is open to all NMLA members. This group seeks to be an active SIG with conference programming and a lively listerv. Members from all libraries are welcomed and encouraged to join.
