ASSESSMENT SUPPORT FOR BUDGET REDUCTION PLANNING
Libraries everywhere are grappling with the reality of sizeable funding cuts. In this difficult and rapidly changing environment, assessment can play a valuable role in providing information critical to support budget reduction and program review. Please join us on Friday January 23, from 1:30 to 3:00 to learn more about how good assessment can lead to better informed decisions. We’ll discuss how libraries are using assessment results, statistics, performance measures/metrics and other management information data to support planning and decision-making related to budget cuts.
