Welcome to Project Outcome Discourse


The goal of Project Outcome is to help public libraries understand and share the true impact of essential library services and programs. With Project Outcome, patron attendance and anecdotal success stories are no longer the only way libraries can demonstrate their effectiveness. Developed by library leaders, researchers, and data analysts, Project Outcome is designed to give libraries simple tools and supportive resources to help turn better data into better libraries.

Project Outcome Discourse is for library leaders and their staff to discuss their respective program outcomes, ask questions about different patron engagement strategies, and further the thoughts and conversations that begin with projectoutcome.org.

Here, you can find various discussion boards to ask and answer questions, start your own conversations, or further your own research into how libraries are using outcome measurement to improve their patron-focused programs and services.
