BC SRC 2022 Survey and Evaluation of Outcomes

Please take a moment to review this year's survey. As we still work through the ongoing impact of COVID-19, this year's survey results will not be representative of usual SRC activity pre-2020 and this will be taken into account as we rebuild capacity and community connections. As always, our goal is to maintain the intrinsic value of the BC SRC while improving our ability to measure outcomes and provide our funders with accountability. To that end, it is essential that each library SYSTEM (NOT BRANCH LIBRARIES OR INDIVIDUALS) complete the survey. By all means consult your staff but report once only please! Our future funding is dependent on us reporting this information. Please spend some time reviewing the questions beforehand so that you and your staff will be comfortable answering them. Please note, the survey deadline is September 30th, 2022. We need all surveys in by that date in order to report back to our funders in time for next year's application. Thank you for your efforts — this information will help us to guide the evolution of the BC SRC and ensure its relevancy.
