An ACRL task force is seeking input on draft documents that outline potential changes to the the Standards for Libraries in Higher Education (SLHE). Provide feedback by submitting your comments through an online feedback form by Tuesday, May 23.
Additionally, the task force held an online open forum on May 11. A recording of that session and presentation slides are now available online.
The SLHE, adopted in 2011, are designed to guide academic libraries in advancing and sustaining their role as partners in educating students, achieving their institutions’ missions, and positioning libraries as leaders in assessment and continuous improvement on their campuses. Libraries in higher education are increasingly required to demonstrate their value and document their contributions to overall institutional effectiveness and be prepared to address changes in higher education. The SLHE is a framework for library planning and assessment that can be used for a variety of circumstances including annual planning, program review, and accreditation self-study.
Direct any questions to the task force chair, Andrea Falcone at Andrea.Falcone@ucdenver.edu or (303) 352-3953.
