The 2009 US IMPACT Survey provided libraries for the first time with statistically valid national data that could be used to show patron impact from their technology services. In 2011, another 400 libraries took advantage of a self-service version of the survey to gather data in their local communities that could be used to talk about the impact libraries are having on their patrons’ lives. This workshop uses case studies from participating libraries to demonstrate effective strategies for communicating with funding agencies and community-based organizations to building sustainable funding and effective partnerships. Through interactive discussions, videos of actual meetings between city council members and partner agencies, and highlights of successful library activities, you will learn ways of positioning libraries as valuable community assets using survey data. If you took the survey, this workshop will help you use the data effectively; if you didn’t, you will learn strategies for gathering and using data in your own community to help your library technology services thrive, not just survive.
