Getting the Right Fit:
Tailoring Assessment Strategies for Your Library
Tuesday, April 22, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm (US Eastern Time), in-person at Brandeis University (Waltham, Massachusetts) and via live-streaming video
Librarians find themselves in an ever-shifting landscape where tight budgets, increased electronic material purchasing, and ever expanding user expectations influence the use and the perceived value of the library. Central to a library’s success will be the ability to present compelling evidence, backed by data to demonstrate the library’s contribution to their institution’s mission and goals. A key component to determining and expressing the value of the library is increasingly being drawn from a successful assessment program. This event—co-hosted by the Boston Library Consortium and OCLC—will help to define the practice of assessment, explore what drives a successful assessment program, and identify practical tools and techniques that may be tailored to use in reaching the specific assessment goals of your library.
