Work is now well underway to roll out the Value and Impact Toolkit with introductory sessions being held across the country. If you have not had the opportunity to attend one in your area why not ask your Library and Knowledge Service Lead about any plans to host a session locally.
Members of the Task and Finish Group will also be present at the Health Libraries Group Conference in Scarborough where delegates will have an opportunity to attend a workshop themed around the toolkit.
Our aim is to continuously improve the toolkit and to achieve this we need your feedback as users of the resource. You will find a “contact us” link on each page of the toolkit which we would encourage you to use to suggest improvements, report any problems you experience, or simply to tell us about your experiences of using the resource.
We hope to make using the toolkit and sharing the outputs with the wider Library and Knowledge community as simple as possible. The Task and Finish Group is exploring various options in achieving this, including streamlining ways to for local services to submit generic impact questionnaire results and locally collected impact case studies.
As a first step in this direction we are able to share a copy of the Generic Impact Questionnaire to any service with a paid subscription to SurveyMonkey. We anticipate that this will save services time inputting the survey locally. To take advantage of this offer please contact Jenny Turner.
