Evaluation

Considerations:

  • Interests and needs of the community
  • Circulation statistics
  • Number of items by subject
  • Age of items
  • Use tools you have available to you such as automated reports
  • Budget
  • Other resources available such as databases, subscription services, non-traditional materials, etc.
  • Evaluation samples of collection, not the entire collection

Questions:

  • What are the strengths of your collection?
  • What are the weaknesses?
  • What are your steps for improving the collection?
