August 2017, OLIS provided scholarships to four RI public library directors and staff members to attend the Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) held in Maine. At this event, 50 New England public library leaders learned about: designing outcome-based evaluation of programs and services; assessing community needs; techniques for tracking public library data and using data and stories to document the impact of libraries.
Come hear from the four RI attendees about what they learned at RIPL and how they have been applying that learning at their library. Discover practical tips and tools you can try out yourself and that fit into RI public libraries’ context. Have some assessment or planning questions? Come ask our panel, as they are certain to have learned about some techniques and resources they can pass along.
Intended Audience: Staff from All Types of Libraries
