Administrators, policy makers, legislators, and the public demand concrete, measurable evidence of the need for libraries and their use. The collection and dissemination of data about library service in a straightforward, convincing manner are integral components of library advocacy in the current economic climate.

With a distinctive combination of research-based information and practical application, Dando *Demonstrates how data from surveys, focus groups, ALA, and state and local sources can be aggregated and used to craft a strong message *Takes readers step by step through the process of using data to tailor a message to specific audiences *Offers real-world examples from school and public libraries that can be used as models Addressing the requirements of a variety of stakeholders, this concise resource lays out an easy-to-follow, systematic way of inspiring action through clear, compelling data.

display_description Being a frontline advocate requires vision, a deep understanding of the workings of the library, and a plan of relationship building and communication. Any advocacy effort will be unsuccessful without data and statistics. Data that speaks to your point is difficult to refute, and being prepared with easily accessible data lends greater authority to you and your message.
