The learning outcomes for the program are:

*   Use the ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education and other foundational documents as a framework to develop benchmarks, evaluate quality and performance, and demonstrate value to the institutional mission.
*   Evaluate various metrics and assessment tools to select the best approach for a given situation.
*   Examine the role of leadership in building a culture of assessment to engage all librarians and staff members in effective decision-making.

This workshop is intended for all librarians, library staff, and library administrators who need to demonstrate the value of their library by documenting their contributions to overall institutional effectiveness and/or to identify areas for quality improvement. Attendees are not expected to have previous experience applying the Standards. Though the primary audience is librarians, library staff, library administrators and other campus professionals in areas of assessment, institutional planning and improvement, and academic technology may be interested as well.

There is a $45 registration fee. A special room rate is available for lodging at Crown Plaza, West Loop location, on October 28, the day prior to the program.
