This group is founded and managed by Fenway Libraries Organization (FLO). Professionals involved Library and Information Science outside of FLO are welcome and encouraged to join. Our focus is on academic libraries in the Boston-area. This community of interest will focus on Assessment in the library including how to build and conduct surveys, and how to use that data to justify, improve, and advocate for library services.
|March 30th||Demystifying Assessment||Assessment is a hot topic in today’s libraries, and raises many questions regarding use and effectiveness. How can the library’s services be measured? What data should be collected? How can staff get started with keeping better assessment practices? This event can help clarify this cloud of questions.
Dennis Flanders, the Assessment and Collection Management Librarian at Lesley University will lead a presentation about how to get started with assessment and shed light on places where your library might already be collecting important data.
Follow up this presentation with a hands-on discussion led by Christina Dent, the Instruction Librarian at Emerson College. Christina will take participants through the process of defining goals and developing effective ways of measuring progress.
