ALI Assessment Committee: Assessment Committee

Materials archive from ALI Assessment Committee Events. This is intended to be the sharing location for materials hosted on other sites, like YouTube, institutional repositories, and their like.

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
