The Western Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association, of the Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association will sponsor a library evaluation workshop in Traverse City at the Traverse Area District Library on June 12, 2008 from 10 am to 5 pm. Workshop instructors will be Ruth Holst, Associate Director of the NNLM/GMR and Jacqueline Leskovec, Outreach and Evaluation Coordinator at the GMR.
Measuring your Impact: Using Evaluation for Library Advocacy is an NNLM/GMR program and provided without charge. The WMHSLA will provide lunch.
Six MLA CE Credits will be awarded for attendees. The outcome for the class is that librarians will be able to show the value of their library’s services through evaluation methods. Participants will become familiar with an evaluation process and will use and take away methods and tools for assessment, evaluation planning, creating logic models, data collection, data analysis and reporting.
The workshop will feature group exercises that move participants through the steps of an evaluation process. There will also be student discussion and exercises in addition to lecture. This class is available for librarians and staff from all types of libraries.
