The ACRL Value of Academic Libraries committee is pleased to make available customizable posters that cite research on the value of using academic libraries:
VAL poster template (Customizable PPT template)
The PowerPoint file above can be downloaded and modified to include your library’s name and logo. The slides are set at 24″ x 36″ for large-format printing, but can be modified.
The posters cite studies from Portal: Libraries and the Academy and Evidence Based Library and Information Practice that indicate students who make use of library resources have higher retention rates and GPA.
If you would like to use the posters without customization, we also have a PDF version available:

If you use the posters in your library or on your campus, please share pictures! You can find ACRL on Twitter @ALA_ACRL.
