Economic Impacts

Cultural organisations are under increasing pressure to supply robust evidence to demonstrate their contribution to the economy and public life, in order to ward off budget cuts and attract external funding. To this end, ALMA-UK commissioned research leading to the development of user-friendly toolkits, to help archives, museums and libraries create transparent, locally-relevant impact reports capable of withstanding economists’ scrutiny.

 Expected very soon in April 2014:

The new  Economic Value Toolkit for Library Services  and the  Report on the Economic Value of Libraries based on research carried out in Northern Ireland Scotland and Wales.
