Meaningful learning happens outside the classroom and a body of robust inquiry shows positive connections between academic libraries and student learning and success. This session is for assessment professionals who are interested measuring outcomes of library programs or services. The Association of College and Research Libraries has partnered with the Public Library Association to develop a version of Project Outcome, a free online toolkit that helps libraries measure outcomes and use the resulting data to identify opportunities for change and act on them. Attend this session to learn about Project Outcome's work to shift the library field towards an outcome measurement standard and how ACRL is adapting this model to meet academic needs. ACRL appointed a Task Force to adapt Project Outcome for academic libraries in January 2018 and its work will continue for over a year. Participants in this session will interact with presenters and provide valuable feedback on the early stages of the academic library outcome model. Share and discuss with others how outcome measurement of your institution's library has or could create opportunities for growth or change in your organization.
