Sponsored by University of Michigan Library

This seminar will be led by a diverse group of librarians and archivists (including a mix of three first-time RBMS presenters and seasoned members) who are early adopters of the newly-approved Standardized Statistical Measures and Metrics for Public Services in Archival Repositories and Special Collections Libraries. The session will begin with a moderated panel showing how the presenters have used the new measures to document impact, articulate value, advocate for resources, inform decision-making, and shape sustainable programs. Use of interactive real-time polls will create a rich and highly energetic learning environment. The bulk of the time will be dedicated to breakout sessions for attendees interested in taking immediate action to start implementing the new standards. Participants will leave the seminar with practical strategies that can be used and adapted for a wide range of repositories around issues such as which measures to adopt, gaps in the standards, and tools for data collection .
