From Booklist:

The authors lead their colleagues in youth services through an assessment strategy that had success for the Youth Services Department of the St. Louis Public Library. Using a new paradigm of planning--Project CATE: Children's Access to and Use of Technology Evaluation--they advise librarians to begin with desired outcomes based upon community analysis and market research and demonstrate the necessity for focus groups. A bibliography and charts are included, and sample data-collection instruments are provided in an appendix. The book gives a clear and concise method for conducting an assessment to refine services and is recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with library and information science programs.
