Origin

In November 2017 the ACRL Board of Directors charged a task force to adapt the Project Outcome measures, developed by the Public Library Association, to an academic library context. In June 2019 the task force completed its work and the ACRL Board charged this editorial board with the work of continuing to support the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries toolkit.

Get Involved

Volunteers will need to complete the volunteer form for a term that will end in June 2021.

More information, including volunteer requirements, can be found on the ACRL volunteer site.
