    July 26, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Sponsored by- COSLA/IMLS Circulation, visits, program attendance, patron satisfaction…these are some of the many measures commonly collected by public librarians. But how well do we understand what measures tell the most meaningful stories of today’s libraries? During the first two webinars in this series, we discussed the current state of the public library data landscape – what data collection efforts exist at the national level and how they impact what we know about libraries and their patrons. In this third webinar, we will look toward the future, considering what data public librarians should collect to demonstrate their impact. To do this, we will hear from speakers both within and outside of the library field who will provide multiple perspectives on meaningful measures.

In this webinar we will explore these differences and techniques to extend the lives of these deceptively simple objects. We will look at the types of albums and books, handling these objects, housings, shelving, and more.
