The Work of the Task Force

Members were librarians representing a range of HSICT members.

How we did this:

The Value Task Force began with a general survey to HSICT members for:

  • Current practices
  • Expressed needs in reporting value
  • Tools, methods, tips to share.

Task-force members identified key Value Categories and brought forth a few top or key resources in each subject.  The Task-force then collectively assessed and establish recommendations for each area.  Finally all information was compiled into this guide with the intent of providing Library leaders with a practical and easy to use resource.
