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 the impact on student success and the effective use of library space, collections, and services. The committee communicates their findings, strategies, and interest in library assessment to the ALI community.

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
