(View Complete Item Description)

Format: Webinar, original date April 24, 2018 Hosted by: WebJunction and OCLC Research Length: 1 hour Whether you’re trying to decide how to allocate your library’s resources or make the best use of your space, formal assessment tools can guide your decision-making. This session will cover why formal assessments are more effective than anecdotal data, and will help you learn how to plan effective evaluations. You will learn how to use what you already know about your patrons, how to determine what information you still need, and how to formulate questions to get you there. This webinar is the first in a three-part series bringing together research and practice from across library sectors, covering the ins and outs of creating, and implementing assessments that provide insightful, actionable data. #libdata4impact Presented by: Kara Reuter and Lynn Silipigni Connaway
