It is my pleasure to announce the Project Outcome Webinar, presented by Sara Goek, ACRL Program Manager. I hope you will join us for this program!

July 19, 2019, 10-11 a.m.

Register for the webinar here: https://www.carli.illinois.edu/project-outcome

Attendees will learn about the new Project Outcome for Academic Libraries surveys and resources. Project Outcome is a free toolkit that helps libraries measure four key learning outcomes – knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness – across seven library program and service areas.  The survey topics cover: Instruction, Events/Programs, Research, Teaching Support, Digital & Special Collections, Space, and Library Technology. The toolkit provides academic libraries of any size the means to easily measure outcomes and use that data as the basis for improvements and advocacy.
