Take charge: communicate value and foster success at your library through ACRL Standards assessment

Friday, March 29, 2019
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Osterlin Building (2nd Floor) of Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City

The MiALA Michigan Community College & Assessment Interest Groups are co-sponsoring a one day pop-up conference that will focus on using the ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education for assessment. The aim is to help guide academic libraries on demonstrating their value and showing their impact to campus constituents. Participants will utilize the ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education to identify institutional priorities and campus collaborators, begin to design an impact model, and learn how to use the results of the ACRL Standards to communicate your library's impact.
