The Visitor Studies Group: Championing excellent visitor experiences
This page is designed to be a dynamic resource of links to useful tools for evaluation.
Please send any links you would like to see included or find useful to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the page grows we may organise the resources by topic or method or by level but for now you will find below a mixture of entry-level advice and tools for more experienced practitioners.
