The Value of Outcome Measurement for Library Programs: An Overview of Project Outcome

Thursday, January 21, 2016 - 2:00pm


PLA is partnering with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office to present this webinar designed to teach participants the value of measuring outcomes within library programs. This introductory webinar will provide an overview of outcome measurement and the Project Outcome tools, and is specifically aimed toward programming librarians interested in getting started using outcome measurement. Whether you are a programming librarian or in charge of programmatic decision-making at your library, it is important to understand the different ways to evaluate your programs. Learn how the PLA initiative Project Outcome provides new ways to collect data and how it relates to making program improvements, creating additional programs, and eliminating programs that are no longer meeting the needs of your community. Participants will see real-life examples of how measuring outcomes helped libraries gather better data to create better programs for their patrons.
