Output measures for public library service to children : a manual of standardized procedures by Virginia A Walter( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual has been designed as a practical guide to quantifying and measuring the results, or outputs, of public library service to children. The basic output measures presented are tailored to reflect library services to children (defined as persons 14 years old and younger) and their care givers. Six categories of measures are presented: (1) library use (children's library visits per child, building use by children, and furniture/equipment use by children); (2) materials use (circulation of children's materials per child, in-library use of children's materials per child, and turnover rate of children's materials); (3) materials availability (children's fill rate, homework fill rate, and picture book fill rate); (4) information services (children's information transactions per child and chldren's information transaction completion rate); (5) programming (children's program attendance per child); and (6) community relations (class visit rate, child care center contact rate, and annual number of community contacts). The first of three parts of the manual provides an overview of measurement and evaluation, basic information about statistics and data collection and analysis, and suggestions for managing the measurement effort in a particular library. The second part presents each output measure in detail, including the data elements needed and instructions for calculating the measure. The third part presents some techniques for collecting more subjective data, such as focus groups and user surveys, that may help to understand and interpret the quantitative output measure data. Copies of all of the blank forms needed are appended. (4 references) (bbm)

Programming for young children : birth through age five by Carole D Fiore( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libraries are faced with changing demographics, emerging technologies, and economic shifts. Families once attended library programs as a unit, children began kindergarten at age five, and libraries offered few programs for children under four. Intact and extended families are a thing of the past. Many children today are raised in single parent families, two-parent families where both parents work, families where the parents are teenagers themselves, and/or families that live long distances from extended family members. As a result, children are placed in child care at an early age, some as young as one month, and there is a greater demand for library programming for younger children. This publication addresses how libraries can adapt their programs and provide education for children from birth through age five and their families. The publication includes the following sections: (1) "Libraries and Early Learning"; (2) "Goals of Library Programming for Young Children"; (3) "Developmental Stages of Young Children"; (4) "General Guidelines for Programming"; (5) "Steps in Program Planning"; and (6) "Program Roundup," an inventory of some successful library programs for young children throughout the United States. (Contains 65 references.) (Swc)
