Nan Carmack, Library of Virginia. My next research project is to find out if Virginia Public Libraries want or need adult programming support and if so, what kind?

Hi! I'm Jane Martel from Arapahoe Libraries in Colorado. I won't be at your VA RIPL event but I've been to several other RIPL events as an attendee, facilitator and instructor. I also facilitate the RIPL discussion board and look forward to your participation.

It's a great tool for staying connected with all your RIPL peers from across the country and for posting data and research-related questions you have.

Have a fantastic time at RIPL; I know you will!

I work in Amelia County, James L. Hamner Public Library. 

Potential project: Is our podcast doing what we planned? Is it doing something else that we want but don't recognize? Is there something it could be doing that we haven't explored? What else should we know but don't currently?

Hello,

My name is Gregg Grunow.  I am the Manager of Library Systems and Support Services for the Portsmouth Public Library in Portsmouth Virginia.  The project I am contemplating is a study of how we can better pinpoint match our title purchases to what our patrons actually want.  We currently have a higher percentage of titles we purchase that never circulate than we are comfortable with.

Great idea! I'm curious about that topic, too, though I have no responsibility for that area.

My name is Deborah Wright, and I am the Director for Prince William Public Library System.  One of our strategic goals revolves around library space.  The measurement we have currently put in place is that we will achieve an 85% patron satisfaction rating on library space.  We have not developed a mechanism to gather or evaluate this data yet.  I hope these sessions will help me discern whether this work will for us or will we need to identify a different measurement for this goal.

My name is Hannah Duggins-Warf. I am the Strategic Data Analyst at Virginia Beach Public Library. I'd like to evaluate our outreach to public schools - looking at where we go and with what frequency and compare that to the school's report card (which shows percentage of free and reduced lunch, demographic breakdown, school's standardized test scores, etc) to see what changes we might need to make to use our resources in the places that would most benefit. I'd like the end product to be an interactive dashboard that could be used by our programming coordinators and our branch managers to help them figure out which outreaches would best meet the needs of which schools.
