Telling the Audit Story

An audit doesn’t just happen in someone’s head as they think about all those questions and checklist items. You must have a method for capturing findings and noting what changes are going to be made and when. Each area of the library being audited should have a document detailing the findings. The documents will be a reflection on the checklist items, answers to the Core Questions, and any recommendations or future actions that need to be done or are in the process of getting started.



How will your library tell its audit story? Detail methods of transparency and any stakeholders that the audit should be shared with.


Consider sharing your findings documents with stakeholders inside and outside the library. This provides transparency and highlights the importance of privacy in the library.
