Join the NMLA Assessment & Statistics SIG

| August 13, 2015 | 0 Comments

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 membership@nmla.org 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. Contact Samantha Rich for more information.
