Reminder: Deadline to Apply for CARLI Counts Cohort 3 is Thurs., July 15

(via Anne Craig, CARLI Senior Director)

Have you wanted your library to…

  • Create a powerful impact narrative for your library?
  • Use data in a compelling way to tell your library’s story to your stakeholders?
  • Demonstrate how your library supports graduation and retention rates?

I’m excited to announce that applications are available for the extremely popular CARLI Counts Cohort 3, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This program is open to all CARLI governing member institutions. Alumni of Cohorts 1 and 2 are welcome to apply.

CARLI Counts is a continuing education library leadership immersion program that prepares librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of academic libraries on student success for the twin purposes of service development and library advocacy. Program participants will learn how to use local library data analytics in alignment with institutional data, goals, and strategic priorities to improve their services and demonstrate their value.

CARLI Counts deliverables will include a portfolio of local case studies, an evaluation of the collective statewide impact of those cases, and a replicable state/regional training model for equipping librarians to be campus leaders in assessing library impact on student learning and success, all of which will be made openly available on the CARLI website. CARLI is working in partnership with the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign and Lewis & Clark Community College.

Please submit your Library Application Form by Thursday, July 15. Go here for additional program details, including dates and times.

Please contact CARLI Senior Director Anne Craig, at abcraig@uillinois.edu, with any questions.
