Global Environment Scan

The IFLA Metropolitan Libraries Section and the IFLA Statistics and Evaluation Standing Committee are collaborating to conduct a global environment scan of the state of current outcomes/impact and value assessment in Metropolitan and National Libraries. The purpose of the study is to identify libraries that have conducted successful outcomes/impact and value assessments to provide models for others to emulate. The Metropolitan Libraries Section will devise training programs reflecting best practices revealed from the study. The results of the scan will be presented at the IFLA Conference in Rotterdam in 2023 and will be submitted for publication. If interested in this endeavor, reach out to Project Contact: Dr. Colleen Cook at for more information.

Satellite Meeting

STATSEVAL is in the process of planning the Satellite Meeting for August of 2023.  Entitled “Demystifying Statistics and Evaluation in Libraries” the theme of the Meeting will encompass the how, what, why, and when of statistics and evaluation in libraries, with the goals to make statistics and evaluation approachable and contextual, building knowledge in the field for both novice and experienced practitioners.

If you’re interested in getting involved or would like to be notified when the call for papers or registration is available, please email Project Contact Dr. Bella Gerlich at

Professional Development Workshops

Are you involved in statistics and evaluation at your Library?
