Toward a more inclusive library: A multi-year, mixed methods approach

In 2017 Duke Libraries staff began a series of mixed method studies to better understand how the Libraries could meet the needs of various student subpopulations, beginning with 1G students, followed by Black students. This presentation will describe the study methodologies, key takeaways from the studies, and the ways in which library staff and campus stakeholders implemented recommendations to improve library services and access for 1G students.

Demonstrating the Impact of System Libraries on Student Success

The University Library Advisory Council (ULAC), comprised of the library directors of the 17 University of North Carolina System schools and a representative from UNC General Administration, is working to demonstrate value and quantify the impact of system libraries on student success. ULAC representatives have agreed to align their ACRL yearly statistics for the past several years, compile and/or calculate ratios relating to key ACRL metrics reported per FTE enrolled students, and align these data with measures of enrollment and student success. This data alignment will allow ULAC partners to conduct statistical analyses, in order to demonstrate value and quantify the impact of system libraries on student success based upon a variety of variables.

Putting Assessment into Action: Lessons learned for implementing change

Kimbel Library at Coastal Carolina University has created a culture of assessment that turns assessment data into new services and resources. Through the use of a variety of scaffolded assessment tools ranging from single semester to multi-year projects involving students, faculty, and library staff, we have developed an environment that embraces making change based on data and in turn, assessing those changes to continually improve library services to the campus community.

Breaking expectations for technical services assessment: outcomes over output

The collections and technical services department at Western Carolina University undertook two separate projects to build a stronger culture and understanding of assessment. The projects helped the department craft appropriate outcomes, identify specific improvement actions, and gain visibility for technical services assessment through the university’s continuous improvement process.

Assessing faculty needs to support a new organizational vision: an anthropologist's perspective

he arrival of a new campus director or provost can bring a radically new vision for an organization. Librarians are often required to assess the needs of campus faculty and this can be challenging. In this session, an anthropologist and her colleague discuss their approach to using qualitative research methods to assess faculty needs—with the goal of strategically aligning with the incoming director or provost’s new vision for the campus as well as making an argument for the value of library services that are essential to meeting the assessed needs of faculty.

ACRL Project Outcome workshop

In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to use the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries surveys and resources. Project Outcome is a free toolkit that helps libraries measure four key learning outcomes – knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness – across seven library program and service areas. The survey topics cover: Instruction, Events/Programs, Research, Teaching Support, Digital & Special Collections, Space, and Library Technology. Project Outcome provides academic libraries of any size the means to easily measure outcomes in those areas and to use that data as the basis for continuous improvements and advocacy.

Prior to the workshop we recommend that participants register for Project Outcome, review basic materials in the toolkit, and consider a goal for outcome measurement at their library. Attendees may wish to bring a laptop or tablet to use during the session.
