The NTLP Consulting Project provides for NTLP to meet the consulting needs of Texas libraries. In some cases NTLP staff assist the library directly with particular activities; in other cases NTLP staff provide information in response to specific requests, or contract with third-party consultants to provide assistance.
Consulting includes activities such as:
- Collection Development
- Community Analysis
- Cultural Diversity
- Disaster Planning
- Image Audits
- Long Range Planning
- Policy Development
- Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis
- Space Planning
- Survey Development
- E-Rate Assistance
- Grant-Writing Assistance
- Integrated Library System (ILS) Assistance
- Library Establishment Assistance
- Outreach to the Underserved (O2U) Project
- Technology Consulting and Planning
- Texas Public Library Standards
Assistance with planning collaborative projects
During FY2008 NTLP commissioned consultants to prepare reports on a range of topics related to libraries in North Texas. Those reports are available here.
For FY 2012, TSLAC funding enables NTLP to provide free brief one-on-one consulting to TSLAC-accredited libraries in the NTRLS service area. We can also offer free brief consulting to NTLP partner libraries in FY 2012 and beyond. More in-depth consulting is available for a fee, with a discount available to NTLP Partner Libraries.
