ST 18/12: Statistics for advocacy in Poland

October 12, 2012

I am happy to note that the first Statistics for Advocacy course in Poland was held on 25th September 2012.

Lovely Masuria: lakes and forests …

Joanna Burska from Olsztyn County Library reports that there were 12 participants (directors and persons involved in statistic works) from public libraries in Warmia and Mazury region.

The materials were translated into Polish in late 2011, with financial support fram SES/IFLA. Joanna is now working on the final version of materials with comments after first course. It will then be published on the net as you suggested. She adds:

I hope that demand for statistical training will be increasing in Poland and in my region (as in Norway). Problem is that librarians are still not aware enough that numbers are favourable arguments. I am convinced that it will change soon and course will be very important for librarians.
