Toot Your Own Horn Preview – Jill Hurst-Wahl

“Why Assessment Matters: Defining Your Results” will be presented by Jill Hurst-Wahl at the April 8th UNYSLA meeting, “Toot Your Own Horn.”  Here is a preview:

The year is 2013 and your management has called you in to discuss your library’s impact.  Would you have the data needed in order to answer the questions (and perhaps concerns)?  To prepare you for conversations like that one, we will begin by discussing the options available for assessing your library’s services.  After that foundation has been laid, we will work together to understand traditional and creative methods for capturing the data you need.  Throughout the session, we’ll keep an eye toward those methods that you can implement now.
