This month’s featured advocacy resource is a “Valuing Library Services Calculator” from the National Library of Medicine. This comprehensive tool prompts users to enter circulation statistics and other usage data, together with operations and collections expenditures, to run a cost/benefit analysis that’s useful for communicating a library’s value to administrators.
Additional advocacy resources are available at the Music Library Advocacy group page on Humanities Commons. Because of the way Humanities Commons is structured, it’s easier to access our collection of web links on the Music Library Advocacy blog (called a “site” in HC). You can access the blog either by clicking “site” at the top of the Advocacy group homepage, or going directly to https://muslibadvocacy.hcommons.org.
