Evaluation Project
#27
Hello,

My primary work is in Collection Development at Boulder PL,  and in our work plan this year we are evaluating our collections at each branch; looking at our methodology for weeding and purchasing; we'd like to make use of the 'right-sizing' documentation from other libraries--with special emphasis on non-fiction collections. Thus far, I've finished the data collection stage [mostly] and am in the  process of putting it all together to be able to evaluate and make it presentable. We hope all of this will help inform how we budget and purchase for our collections. We use Edelweiss Analytics, and lots and lots of spreadsheets from the ILS data!  
We are also in the analysis stage of the data collection/surveys our library undertook for development of a Master Plan, which includes possibility of expansion.  We used Analytics on Demand's Patron Profiles for demographics, as well as other methods from the research group, Joining Vision&Action. I am not part of the Master Planning committee, but did participate in the creation of the staff survey.
I will bring samples of the data collection I've undertaken for the right sizing evaluation.
