Join us for the free ACRL Presents webcast, “Get to Know the Revised Standards for Libraries in Higher Education: A Guide for Supporting Planning and Assessment,” on Thursday, May 24, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST.

Recently updated in 2018, the Standards for Libraries in Higher Education (SLHE) is a powerful guide for academic library planning and assessment. In this thirty-minute session followed by a Q&A and discussion, engage in an overview of the revisions, including the updated assessment models, the addition of new principles, and the enhanced appendices that focus on outcomes and metrics. Learn how others have used SLHE to demonstrate library impact and value to various stakeholders. See what the revised SLHE can do for you!
