NN/LM SCR sponsoring Library Advocacy Class in Houston

Do you worry that your administration doesn’t understand the value of your library? Are you concerned about library cutbacks and closures?

The NN/LM SCR is sponsoring the free class Measuring Your Impact: Using Evaluation for Library Advocacy. Conducted by the NN/LM Outreach Evaluation Resource Center, the class will teach librarians how to demonstrate the value of the librarian and the library’s services to their administration and patrons. The workshop will feature group exercises that move participants through the steps of an evaluation and advocacy process. This class is approved for 6 hours of Continuing Education credit from the Medical Library Association.
