Assessment in Action LogoComing to the ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas? Be sure to see assessment project posters presented by the first 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 75 teams will present posters during each time slot:

Assessment in Action: Year One Project Posters, Session I
Friday, June 27, 2014, 2-4pm
BALLY-Gold Room

Assessment in Action: Year One Project Posters, Session II
Saturday, June 28, 2014, 8:30-10:30am
BALLY-Skyview 6

Learn more about these assessment projects from the abstracts in the poster guide (pdf). Additionally, teams are submitting online final project reports, which will be analyzed and synthesized in a report released by ACRL later this year. The individual reports (including poster images) will also be available in a searchable online collection.

ACRL is undertaking 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, is made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
