• How do you measure success in your library?
• Are library statistics gathered? How are they used, and what do they tell you about the library?
• Who makes funding decisions about your library? How are those decisions made? Is funding very difficult to get?
• What is one story you can tell about a positive outcome that was achieved by your library?These are the questions I need to answer for the ILN's topic of discussion. It cuts across library advocacy and knowing the roles that librarians play in the community he or she works with. I will get back to answering these questions before the weekend comes to a close. For now, follow these links since ILN participants have written about proving the library's worth and library advocacy.
What will you do to prove the worth of your library?
