I love this new infographic from ALA, which shows in vibrant, user-friendly visual terms both the challenges public libraries face as well as the great work they’re doing to manage their resources and thrive in hard times. It’s big, it’s maybe a little busy, but it’s more sophisticated than most of the materials I’ve seen from the association in years past. And it’s a handy tip sheet to refer to, the next time someone asks you why they should vote for a library ballot measure.
Are there other particularly good infographics for library advocacy or related topics? I’m itching to collect, in a best-practices kind of way.
