Demonstrating results : using outcome measurement in your library by Rhea Joyce Rubin( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"According to New Planning for Results trainer Rubin, outcome measurement lets libraries evaluate how they affect their users' quality of life. This latest addition to the PLA-sponsored Results Series uses familiar task breakdowns along with key terms in a step-by-step, service-oriented format so that readers can master the outcome measurement process as they enhance library programs using evaluation techniques." "Using the 14 step-by-step customizable workforms, libraries can gather and interpret statistically accurate data to demonstrate outcomes and attract funding. Applying these concepts in examples and in two running case studies - an Internet class for seniors and a tutoring program for teen mothers - brings the model to life. Six "tool kits" include tips on creating evaluations, coding data, and selecting a sample."--Jacket

Ten current or former prison librarians cover all aspects of prison libraries and the unique challenges that they face. Topics are: "The Prison Community" (Daniel Suvak); "The Planning Process" (Rhea Joyce Rubin); "The Professional Staff" (Sandra Souza); "The Inmate Staff" (Stephen M. Mallinger); "Collection Development" (Diana Reese); "Services" (Rhea Joyce Rubin and Daniel Suvak); "Programs" (Nancy Pitts); "Literacy" (Ann Piascik); "Budgeting" (Daniel Suvak); "The Facility and Equipment" (Timothy Brown);"Automation" (Vibeke Lehmann); and "Providing Legal Access" (Jay Ihrig). Contributors were selected to represent a cross-section of the states, types of prison, and types of experience. Appendices include a sample collection development policy, request for reconsideration of library materials form, checklist for reconsideration of library materials form, and sample automation needs assessment survey. A 66-item bibliography contains recommended reading for prison librarians. (Contains over 150 references.) (Mas)

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intergenerational activities are any activities planned to be of mutual benefit to more than one age group. This manual concentrates on school-age children and older adults sharing experiences in the library or elsewhere using library materials. The following four models are introduced: (1) Sharing Letters; (2) Sharing Stories; (3) Sharing History; and (4) Sharing Fun. They range from simple to complex, and include one-time and ongoing activities for a library to do alone or with interagency cooperation. Changing demographics mean an increasing number of older adults in Texas and a growing need for services for them. The guide explores how to conduct and evaluate intergenerational programs, including working with older adult volunteers and children. (Contains 57 references.) (SLD)
