Evidence based practice requires thoughtful information collection, and surveys are one of the most popular tools for developing a good understanding of what’s going on in your community, how satisfied people are with current services, and the attitudes of those from whom you hope to raise funds. This workshop will explore the techniques that librarians and others can use to design surveys that provide the data they need. Topics include setting initial objectives for information collections, preparing reliable and valid data collection instruments, administering the survey and analyzing and reporting the results.
