Conducting needs assessments in MLA News

Posted by on March 28th, 2007 Posted in: News

MLA News is running a two-part series about conducting needs assessments this spring. The first article, Needs Assessment for a Consumer Health Library Service, Part One: The Planning Process appears in the March 2007 issue. The second part of the series, Needs Assessment for a Consumer Health Library Service, Part Two: Implementation and Analysis, will appear in the May 2007 issue of MLA News. Part One focuses on planning a needs assessment. It lists some good examples of methods – surveys, key informant interviews, etc. It also gives examples of the different types of stakeholders and audiences who might be interviewed or surveyed as well as examples of existing information (publications, databases) that are useful sources of data in needs assessments. The article provides a lot of ideas in a small amount of news space.
