When you send off the annual statistics returns, do you wonder if there was more you could do with them?
Do you ever feel that you should be collecting something different?
Do you wonder how to present statistics so that they are not quite the dry subject they usually are?
The Toolbox can help you. We’ve done extensive research into what you collect, the issues with collecting and using data, and examples of how statistics have been used.
You may have seen the statistics toolbox link appear under the Quality and Impact drop-down menu over the last couple of weeks. This work is the output from one of the HEE/CILIP Leadership Development Programme 2017-18 project groups. We were set the task of “Developing a toolbox together with a recommended minimum data set to enable Library and Knowledge Services (LKS) staff [providing services to the NHS] to collect local staffing, financial and activity data and make effective use of this for service improvement and reporting to stakeholders”
The Toolbox covers the following areas:
- Case Studies
- Supplementary Dataset
- Dashboard Templates
- Frequently Asked Questions
Feedback and comments can be sent to Heather Steele (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We would like to thank all the champions and contributors who have made this work possible.
