Upcoming CILIP impact toolkit

The Impact Toolkit will be launched on 3rd July at the CILIP Conference, 2 and 3 July in Liverpool, the Impact Toolkit fits with one of the four conference themes; Demonstrating Value.

The Impact Toolkit will be available to members on CILIP’s Virtual Learning Environment. It will provide practical resources, information and support so members can clearly and effectively demonstrate their value as professionals – and the value of the services they manage and provide – to key decision makers and stakeholders.

There are two strands in the toolkit. Understanding value will cover planning and scoping, stakeholder analysis, and impact and evidence. The communicating value section will include communications, relationships and influence, and advocacy.

The toolkit contains a mixture of resources including excerpts from Facet publications, videos, websites and discussion forums and activities to help members reflect and apply the techniques discussed.

I was fortunate to be asked to be an external advisor on the toolkit so look forward to its release.


A very big welcome to HELP.

As you can see, there are two tabs at the top of the page: ‘Tools and resources’ and ‘Useful publications’.

We have identified a number of studies, reviews, standards, toolkits, websites etc. that you may find interesting.

Of course, this represents a small fraction of library-related research on value and impact, so we would be delighted to hear your suggestions.

Happy blogging
