ALI Assessment Committee: Assessment Committee

What We Do

The ALI Assessment Committee, a standing committee of ALI, provides a forum for identifying assessment models, research strategies, and techniques for assessing effective use of library space, collections, and services. The committee represents to ALI the academic librarians’ findings, concerns, and interest in library assessment.

The Assessment Committee will:

  • Survey the academic librarians’ ongoing professional development needs and interests in assessment.
  • Compile and update online and face to face assessment-related content addressing needs and interests of academic librarians
  • Promote opportunities for academic librarians to collaborate, connect and converse on library assessment
  • Represent academic librarians’ concerns for the ongoing development of library assessment
  • Create an online toolbox to support academic library assessment.
