Understand the Process
Make sure you understand the process – the one within the library, within your department, and the process used by your supervisor.
Do not be afraid to ask questions as necessary.
Ask your supervisor.
Come to Library Human Resources.
Find out what form or format will be used by your supervisor or within your department.
Ask your supervisor to describe how they compile information, develop and draft evaluations, and what criteria they use to evaluate and measure performance, what type of outcomes and results do they look for, etc.
Ask about process – how to the upper levels of management participate in the process in your unit/department?
Understand the culture of evaluation in the organization, specifically what do the ratings mean and how are they viewed.
