Dear Colleague, October is Canadian Library Month and National Medical Librarians Month, a time to celebrate and promote the value of our work. What a perfect time to launch the HSICT’s (Health Science Information Consortium of Toronto) Library Value Toolkit: http://guides.hsict.library.utoronto.ca/libraryvaluetoolkit [copy and paste link] This toolkit is the creation of the HSICT Task Force on Evaluating Library Services. Task Force members, from a cross section of HSICT member libraries, distilled and organized the information in the toolkit which includes tools, examples, recommendations, and even samples and strategies from our own organizations and work. As evaluating services can be overwhelming, our goal was KISS! We hope you will find this guide helpful for both evaluating and communicating your value.
