Many libraries are working to demonstrate the effectiveness of their activities by initiating and completing outcome-based evaluation of projects. Using a logic model can enhance planning, implementation, and dissemination activities. When you use a logic model, you become aware of the assumptions underlying what you are doing.
During her June 12, 2018 webinar delivered as part of the Data Informed Public Library initiative, Demonstrating Library Value with Data, presenter Amanda Standerfer discussed the value of using a logic model to guide your library’s data collection and to set targets to show your success and inform learning when using data to demonstrate impact.
