What is EBSM?

EBSM is a complete methodology for Collection Performance Improvement which helps librarians to make collection management more effective, more customer focused, less wasteful, more measured and performance based.
Used in libraries for over 21 years, the repeatable EBSM framework uses data from a library’s own ILS/LMS database along with local target settings as its evidence base. The powerful EBSM toolset uses this evidence base to perform complex comparisons between the locally set targets and the current situation to provide a series of action plans to help library staff drive performance towards targets.

We’ll be celebrating 21 years of EBSM at our upcoming Forums with some fun giveaways! Get involved by posting photos of celebrations at your library using the hashtag #ebsm21 to get involved.
