At this preconference, PLA will convene public library representatives and introduce them to Project Outcome and how it helps them measure the impact of their services. Library leaders from PLA’s Performance Measurement Task Force will kick off the session by describing their experience in pilot-testing outcome measurement in seven core service areas. Attendees will learn how to deploy outcome measures in their libraries, collect and use resulting data, and leverage the project's support network to ensure successful adoption.
