Sustain Your Smart Space Efforts
All your efforts to collaborate with your community to create a space for participatory, active learning at the library deserve some attention to how you will sustain it going forward. Think about how you might assess the success of your efforts, and then how to communicate your value to stakeholders.
When you defined goals and outcomes for your Smart Space project, you were laying the foundation for evaluating its success. Learn how to identify ways to measure your intended outcomes.
Evaluation may be one of your best tools for talking to community stakeholders about the vitality of your library. Tell them how your Smart Space successes contribute to community well-being.
