Evaluation Projects
#28
Project Description: The State Library of Iowa invests significant resources in providing training for new directors. Due to a variety of factors there is a high rate of director turnover in our 544 libraries.   The six district consultants provide one on one training (about 2-3 hours) during the first few months on the job, as well as answering specific questions during consulting sessions.  The State Library also provides 30 hours of class time during Public Library Management 1 and an additional 30 hours of class during Public Library Management 2.  I would like to find ways to use data and outcomes to measure our effectiveness in providing training for new directors.  

Question/Problem Statement: Is there anything the state library could do to reduce the rate of attrition? Are we adequately training directors for the job?  

Statement of Why: This is in line with the State Library of Iowa’s strategic goal of increasing libraries’ institutional capacity by “employing knowledgeable and community focused staff who incorporate the best professional practices to deliver high quality library services.” The State Library would like to ensure that our limited resources (especially staffing) are being utilized to our best advantage.  It would be a tremendous help to the library community to find ways to improve the rate of attrition of new directors.
