National Impact of Library Public Programs Assessment: summative report

librarianship Libraries United States of America

From 2017 to 2019, the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office (PPO) implemented the National Impact of Library Public Programs Assessment (NILPPA): Phase 1. NILPPA: Phase 1 was the first step of a multi-phase strategy, which responds to the rise of public programs to the forefront of operations in libraries throughout the United States, and the need to document the impact of public programs on libraries, their communities, and society. The NILPPA initiative was originally developed through an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership planning grant and published in a white paper in 2014.

This report serves as a comprehensive record of the research activities and presents the frameworks for both research questions, so that funders and administrators understand the results of the investment in this project.
