Next Week! Introduction to the 2018 Texas Public Libraries Annual Report

On Tuesday, January 29, at 2 p.m., Accreditation Program Coordinator Stacey Malek and Library Statistics Specialist Valicia Greenwood will present an Introduction to the 2018 Texas Public Libraries Annual Report.

This webinar contains what you need to know about the Texas Public Libraries Annual Report and public library accreditation. Whether this is your first time through, or have been doing it for years, it will be worth your time to participate.

You’ll learn tips for successful completion and what changes have been made in report questions. There will be time spent on the financial reporting sections and details about maintenance of effort (MOE). We will provide links to tools that will help you understand the questions, from reporting downloadable materials to program statistics. We’ll discuss each section of the report and include a live demonstration of how to work your way around Texas LibPAS, the data collection portal. We will answer questions you may have about reporting and accreditation.

This webinar provides 1 TSLAC CE hour of credit with the live viewing. Join us! Register at Introduction to the 2018 Texas Public Libraries Annual Report.
