Making Sure Libraries “Measure Up”, by Karen Muller | American Libraries Magazine

Making Sure Libraries “Measure Up”, by Karen Muller | American Libraries Magazine | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

By Karen Muller:

 

"Times are tough for libraries, and when times get tough, managers—whether college administrators, a principal, a board of trustees, or even voters—start asking about the viability of programs and the measurable benefits of those programs. That’s why understanding how to measure your library’s activities—and therefore proving their value—is critical in today’s economic environment."
