Coming to the ALA Annual Conference in Orlando? Be sure to see assessment project posters presented by the second year participants in ACRL’s program “Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success”(AiA). Librarian-led teams carried out assessment projects over 14 months at their community colleges, colleges and universities. The projects examined the impact of the library (instruction, reference, collections, space, and more) on student learning/success. Part of the 48 teams will present posters during each time slot:
Assessment in Action: Third Year Project Posters, Session I
Friday, June 24, 2016, 2-4:00pm
Hyatt Regency Orlando, Regency Ballroom Q
Assessment in Action: Third Year Project Posters, Session II
Saturday, June 25th, 2016, 8:30-10:30am
Hilton Orlando, Florida Ballroom 1-3
Learn more about these assessment projects from the abstracts in the poster guide (pdf). Additionally, teams are submitting online posters and final project reports, which will be analyzed and synthesized in a report released by ACRL later this year. The individual reports and poster images will be available later this summer in a searchable online collection.
ACRL has undertaken AiA in partnership with the Association for Institutional Research and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities. The program, a cornerstone of ACRL’s Value of Academic Libraries initiative, was made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
