Project Outcome: An Easy way to Measure the Impact of Library Services

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List, All of Us

Check out the free Project Outcome toolkit that allows public libraries to collect and share information about how their services impact their community, including in the area of health.

The kit provides patron surveys and easy to use tools to record data that measure the outcome of their services. This allows libraries to better understand how their resources and programs are being used and the impacts on their community, which empowers libraries to determine what they can do to improve.

Project Outcome will focus on addressing the patron’s knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness in the programs and services offered by the library. Service areas covered by standardized surveys include health, civic and community engagement, early childhood literacy, education, and lifelong learning, digital learning and economic development.

To learn more about Project Outcome and start your toolkit today, go to www.projectoutcome.org.

Project Outcome is made possible by the Public Library Association (PLA) in partnership with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Association of College of Research Libraries, and Community Attributes Incorporated.  NNLM partnered with PLA on the health survey.
