The Libraries Taskforce is running a series of workshops on evaluations facilitated by The Audience Agency, a national audience development consultancy and independent not-for-profit organisation, these workshops will support you in building an understanding of:

  • what evaluation is (and what it isn’t!)
  • why evaluation is important
  • how it can help you achieve your aims
  • how to do it effectively

Using presentation of good practice and case studies, discussions and shared learning, and creative task-based exercises, the workshops will address the challenges and explore the benefits of embedding evaluation in the work of libraries, including strategic planning and project delivery.
