AACRL Fall 2016 Webinar

Desirable Outcomes Closing the Loop for Primary Stakeholders


Dean Kimmetha Herndon, Samford University Library; Jennifer Taylor, Chair Special Collection, Samford University Library; Ed Cherry, Systems Librarian, Samford University Library; and Lauren Young, Instruction/Reference Librarian, Samford University Library


Samford University Library engages in multiple means of assessment under the leadership of our dean and in response to university-level, assessment needs. Administrative and instructional outcomes have both been in focus, including responding to student and curricular needs, reporting and responding to use of library resources at the department level, and creating and assessing student-learning outcomes relative to information literacy. This webinar will provide a cultural overview of our particular initiatives and examples of assessment in response to questions concerning collection, hours, electronic resources, and instruction.
