If you are interested in learning more about using data for planning, assessment, and decision-making  in public libraries, please consider attending this great training provided by the Colorado State Library/Consortium. (Description below)

The Oregon State Library plans to offer a limited number of training sessions locally in the upcoming year based on some of the curriculum presented at RIPL. However, we want to encourage anyone that is able to attend the full training to do so.

Please contact me if you are interested in the local training that will be offered next year. (Contact info at end of message)

Research Institute for Public Libraries 2016

Are you...
... a public librarian, administrator, or other staff interested in getting started using data for savvy and strategic planning?
... looking for both inspiration and instruction in a hands-on, participatory environment?
... seeking to learn about outcomes and how to measure library impact?
... committed to leading your organization in making data-based decisions?
...eager to develop a peer network to support your research and evaluation efforts?

Launched in 2015, the Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) brings together people from across the country (rural, suburban, and urban public libraries) for an intensive, participatory learning experience. Offered by the Colorado State Library and the Colorado Library Consortium, this year's institute will take place September 30-October 3, 2016 in Denver, CO. Participants will learn about topics such as:

* designing outcome-based evaluation of programs and services
* assessing the needs of your community
* techniques for tracking public library data and using these data for planning, management, and proving worth to your community
* using data and stories to demonstrate library impact
* aligning research efforts with national initiatives such as Edge Benchmarks, the Impact Survey, and Project Outcome

Mark your calendar!

Enrollment opens January 26, 2016 - and only 100 participants will take part in this immersive learning experience.

Here is what 2015 participants had to say about RIPL:

"This was one of the best training situations I've attended. It was laid out in a way that promoted optimal learning while still giving opportunities for networking & socializing. Great job!"

"The curriculum & speakers were so well organized around the overall RIPL themes. It felt like a course in library data instead of individual conference sessions."

"...This was, by far, the best conference I've ever attended and I think part of that was the fact that it was so focused on one area - we had the time to delve into the various aspects of that, as well as get to know one another and work as a team.  I look forward to applying what I learned within my organization."

"RIPL was an incredible experience. I learned so much and feel like I came back equipped with new knowledge and skills to implement some relevant data collection and evaluation practices at our library organization."
