This SPEC Kit captures a snapshot of how ARL member libraries are defining their outreach and engagement programs, how they are assigning and structuring responsibilities, and how they are measuring the success and impact of their efforts. The survey gathered information about types of activities, which populations are served, levels of funding and staff support for these activities, program planning, collaborations and strategic partnerships, and assessment measures and reporting practices. In addition, survey respondents were asked to provide a brief case study for an outreach or engagement activity in their organization.
This SPEC Kit includes examples of statements on outreach mission and goals, programs and services, event planning documents, reports of outcomes, and job descriptions.
