Demonstrating your achivements

Demonstrating your achivements

This topic is dealt with in more detail in the developing services section of this toolkit. It should however be considered from an early stage in the process. Creating a baseline and setting out to measure your achievements is important for community organisations and local authorities seeking to transfer library facilities. All community organisations should start to think how they will monitor the impact of their work in relation to the library transfer. This will look at the wider benefits likely to be delivered as the project progresses eg: increased community involvement.

A baseline will enable the organisation to monitor its progress against a target that it is working towards. Suitable baseline data will relate back to the purpose of the transfer.

Key Question

Is there a clear baseline of data against which to measure the impact of the transfer?
