Welcome to Measures that Matter 

Organized by the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA) with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Measures that Matter initiative began in 2016 to help coordinate a field-wide conversation around library data collection with the aim to develop and implement a related action plan. The project’s intention is to examine, evaluate, map and develop the landscape of public library data collection in the United States with key library stakeholder groups for a more coordinated approach to the collection of public library data nationally.
