2015 / Stress Tests: Conducting Strategic Analyses of Public Library Services & Programs to Guide Libraries of Future

Members: 15
Latest Activity: Nov 5, 2015

Sunday 13 September at 11:00 - 12:30

Libraries need to change without abandoning their core mission and services. To adapt in this dynamic landscape, the Free Library of Philadelphia developed an analytical tool that objectively and effectively “stress tests” programs and services to determine their impact, feasibility, viability and sustainability. In this interactive workshop, we will describe our stress test and demonstrate this versatile tool for producing analyses that can guide libraries in new directions. Then, we will model a stress test based on a participant submission and lastly, engage the audience in an interactive stress test of another participant submission.

Organizers:
Sara S. Moran, MSc (London School of Economics), Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, Free Library of Philadelphia
Nathaniel Eddy, MLIS (University of Pittsburgh), Strategist, Free Library of Philadelphia
Autumn McClintock, MFA (Poetry, Emerson College), Strategist, Free Library of Philadelphia
Joel A. Nichols, MA (Fiction, Temple University), MSLIS (Drexel), Data Strategist/Children’s Programs, Free Library of Philadelphia
