Are you interested in conducting research on library contributions to student learning and success? Join us for a free webinar on Monday, February 4, 2019, at 1pm Central Time (2pm EST / 12pm MST / 11am PST) to learn about using ACRL’s 2017 report, Academic Library Impact: Improving Practice and Essential Areas to Research (available for download or purchase), to design a new research project.
The report, developed for ACRL by OCLC Research, investigates library contributions to student learning and success. It surveys existing literature in the field and outlines six priority areas for new research. In each priority area, it highlights exemplary existing studies and suggests new research questions.
During this live discussion, the chair and vice-chair of the Value of Academic Libraries Committee and a co-author of the Academic Library Impact report will share strategies for effectively using the report in planning new research. They will also briefly discuss ACRL’s current round of Academic Library Impact Research Grants and how to apply (the deadline is April 25, 2019).
Holly Mercer (University of Tennessee), chair of the Value of Academic Libraries committee
Jill Becker (University of Kansas), vice-chair of the Value of Academic Libraries committee
Stephanie Mikitish (Rutgers University), co-author of the Academic Library Impact report and VAL committee member
