JDL Receives Library of Michigan Certification for Meeting ‘Essential Level’ of Quality Services

The Library of Michigan has awarded the Jackson District Library JDL a certificate of completion for meeting the Essential Level requirements of the Quality Services Audit Checklist (QSAC). To earn certification, the JDL demonstrated its competence in seven categories of achievement including human resources; governance/administration; services; collection development; technology; facilities and equipment; and public relations/marketing.

QSAC has defined “essential services” – the basics of all library service – as relatively low-cost standards that every library can and should achieve. They are helpful guidelines to libraries just starting out, while providing important review for more established institutions. Essential standards are described as “those which should be achieved first because of their fundamental importance.”

QSAC represents the work of more than 100 library directors, trustees and staff members who together created measures of quality for our state’s public libraries,” said State Librarian Randy Riley. “The staff of the Jackson District Library is to be commended for achieving a vital milestone in library service.”

QSAC was made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through LSTA funding. The Institute of Museum and Library Services, an independent Federal grant-making agency dedicated to creating and sustaining a nation of learners by helping libraries and museums serve their communities, supports JDL.
