ILA Best Practices


Best practices are defined as strategies, activities, or approaches that have been shown through research and/or evaluation to be effective and efficient. The ILA Best Practices committee is collecting practices that constitute excellence in libraries. Recognizing that librarianship is both an art and a science, we believe that the ideas presented on this web page are starting points for discussion about the service we strive for and may help each other obtain.

ILA is working to identify and make known services, community outreach initiatives, and administrative/management procedures that are innovative and replicable. We would like to hear from all types of library organizations.

Let us know your best practice by contacting a member of our committee.

Good idea, wrong implementation. If you really want to collect best practices, make it easy for people to contribute: Start a wiki instead of a blog. Create a community of individuals who will not only share best practices with you, but who will seek out best practices by others.

I would like to forward the Moraine Valley Library’s Information Literacy Expectation page for consideration as an ILA best practice:
