Logic Models: A Novel approach to communicating library value
This poster was developmed by: Alan Gale & Pam Jacobs; University of Guelph
The University of Guelph Library has adopted a “logic model” approach to describing and evaluating its services. Logic models are widely used in the broader public sector: much less so in academic libraries. This poster will discuss the development of models for the Information Resources area of the Library, including the performance measures used to evaluate the services. A prototype logic model will be presented. Logic models offer a practical, flexible approach to the evaluation of library services. The discussion process that underlies their development was a wonderful opportunity to jointly review and incorporate best practices into current library processes.
