Discover the impact of your work on teaching, learning and research in:

Beyond performance indicators in educational libraries
a one day workshop on 13 July, London



Measuring performance may not be the most inviting topic but, in an
increasingly competitive education world, success in securing support and
resources depends crucially on being able to demonstrate what impact you are
having.

Most approaches to measuring library performance concentrate on whether and
how various processes are working - or on performance of the system.  In
education libraries there are equally important issues about the impact of
services and teaching, learning and research.  This is true whether the
library is serving a school, college or university or a more specialised
environment such as health or law.

How will this event help you?

During the day, the trainers will draw upon their research and development
work in school, college and health libraries to offer a practical approach.
This will enable education librarians  to assess their impact and
achievements.  You will work through the processes of generating impact
indicators and targets.  
They will consider the 'tricky' issues of pulling together useful data to
assess levels of impact in the complex world of education, where simple
cause and effect relationships usually cannot be proved. 

The strategy advocated in this workshop should lead to more effective
development planning in education libraries.


By the end of the day you will have:

*	chosen some key areas for enhancing the impact of your library
*	distinguished between performance indicators and indicators of
impact and achievement
*	developed some realistic indicators of impact and achievement
*	looked at issues involved in measuring impact and achievement
*	planned how to collect data to assess whether you are making an
impact.

Who should attend?
School, college or HE librarians (including specialist service providers
such as health or law librarians) who are interested in moving beyond
performance assessment to evaluating the impact of their work on teaching,
learning and research.
