The Identifying Community Needs for Public Library Management course is part of the Public Library Management Professional Certificate from University of Michigan - MichiganX.
Public libraries are becoming dynamic hubs for learning, civic engagement, and community.
This course will discuss strategies for gathering statistical and descriptive data about public library communities. Learners will identify local partners in education, social services, government agencies, and more.
While conducting real-world investigations, learners will gain deeper insight into the wants and needs of community organizations. This will empower learners to make better management decisions to address those needs, even in libraries with limited budgets.
