By The Numbers—Law Library Assessment
In this era where libraries MUST prove their worth and value to the institutions they serve, data collection and library assessment has become an essential duty we must all undertake. Data collection and analysis will allow librarians to better understand and quantify the library’s strengths and weaknesses, determine the drivers of demand on the library’s resources, along with changes in those demands, and to properly allocate resources. Improved understanding of the data generated will allow librarians to justify resources needed, motivate staff, and better plan for the future.
At the fall LLNE meeting, attendees will be introduced to tools used for law library data collection and assessment for all segments of law librarianship. We will also be celebrating LLNE’s 70th Anniversary with a program highlighting LLNE’s history and accomplishments. Please be on the lookout for more details as they develop.
The meeting will be held at the Westin Portland Haborview Hotel in Portland Maine (http://www.westinportlandharborview.com/) on October 28, 2016. We look forward to seeing you there!
