Outcomes, Value & Impact: Metrics for Library Success
Monday & Tuesday, September 28th & 29th at the Vancouver Club
Are your measurement strategies up-to-date?
If these questions interest you and your team, then this is the symposium for you to explore new ways to think about measurement as well as to address our future challenges.
This symposium is about the various metrics and measures the library sector and discipline uses to manage what it is doing (its activities and individual services) and the value of what it is doing. These are very different measurement objectives and processes, yet complementary and vital. It discusses "measurement" in a broad sense, including the value of selected services as well as the overall management of processes and services. It is very important that people in the library sector are aware of different measures - - with different objectives. Who knows where new ideas will come from? All libraries can learn from each other.
This two-day event illustrates the breadth and depth of the challenge for stronger and better measurements of our impact and value:
Explore with your colleagues the opportunities and practices in both qualitative and quantitative measurements as well as best practices in visualization of data and communicating with our funders, management, councils and more.
