Living Learning Libraries standards

The Living Learning Libraries standards worksheets help you identify and report on how your library fits within the Living Learning Libraries' standards.

Part A. Standards - quality levels and goals

The Standards are performance measures to assist in the development of library services, through comparison with evidence based benchmarks. For the purpose of this document Standards are identified as quality levels and goals for attainment.

These Standards worksheets provide the library manager with a space to:

  • identify how their library fits within each standard
  • identify future targets
  • provide commentary on issues, progress and achievements in relation to each standard

Part A presents standards with objectives.  Targets are given where appropriate, along with measurement techniques.

The Standards Worksheets have been developed using the standards published in  PDF iconLiving Learning Libraries .  The Worksheets include the objective of the standard, the method for calculating where your library fits within the standard, measurement parameters and some variables you may wish to consider when providing commentary.  For any other details presented in the standards you will need to refer to the full version of  Living Learning Libraries.
