Who knew that numbers could be such a hot topic?  Don’t miss “Telling Your Story with Data” — a repeat of the standing room-only session at North Carolina Library Association’s 60th Biennial Conference in October!  Here’s why numbers (i.e. data) are so important —

Funders are increasingly asking libraries to use data to demonstrate value and prove need.  How does data help you make your case, what types of data are available, where do you get data, and how do you use data to tell your story?  This presentation will focus on freely-available county and public library data.  Presenters will show attendees several data sources, explain basic concepts of Census data, and discuss ideas for combining this data with library data to tell your story, using examples such as how to enhance grant applications with data and how to create data-supported arguments for funders.

This webinar is a repeat of the NCLA conference session presented by State Library of North Carolina staff members Joyce Chapman, Communications and Data Analysis Consultant, and Beth Hayden, Demographics and Research Librarian.  While this webinar is designed primarily for a public library audience, the data sources and strategies described may be of interest to staff in all types of North Carolina libraries.

Date:  Wednesday, November 13th

Time:  2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
