Value and Impact Toolkit

Comprises 2 resources:

  1. KfH Impact Tools – includes a questionnaire and case study template
    Developed by the Value and Impact Task and Finish Group building on earlier tools from 2009

A National Approach to Capturing the Value & Impact of Health Libraries (presented at EAHIL 2017) explains the development of the  toolkit and highlights how some of the tools can be used. 

  1. Value and Impact Mapping Tool– compiled by Professor Alison Brettle, University of Salford

Designed to help you choose an approach to use to demonstrate value or impact.

It is based on a number of literature reviews and readings of key articles. It complements the MAP Toolkit. 

Value is the importance that stakeholders attach to knowledge and library services. It relates to the perception of actual or potential benefit (BS ISO 16439:2014 – 3.75).  

Impact is part of value. It is seen as the difference or change in an individual or group resulting from their contact with library services (BS ISO 16439:2014 – 3.25).  

 How to use the Value and Impact Mapping Tool 
    1. Decide What you are going to measure for whom? 
    2.  Then choose one of these methods or tools
