“Evolution of Library Assessment at Austin Community College”

Assessment is rarely tracked through one product alone. Austin Community College Library Services (ACC LS) has moved from a paper-based system to a collection of cloud-based services, and continues to refine their statistics-keeping processes.

This workshop focuses on the Assessment products used by ACC LS and highlights the ways that libraries can streamline, collect, and present their statistics to accrediting agencies and College administrations.

Workshop Schedule:

8:00 to 9:00 Breakfast and Networking

9:00 to 12:00 Interactive Assessment workshop (led by Lola Crowling)

12:00 to 1:00 Lunch (provided by CCL)

1:00 to 2:30 Demonstrating the Impact of Library Services at your College (Discussion)

2:30 to 2:45 Closing and Evaluation
