CHICAGOCore will host the webinar “Small Library Assessment Hills You Can Climb” on July 25, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT. The presenters, all experienced library assessment specialists, will briefly describe the landscape of library assessment, why we do assessment, and different methods for assessment. They will also share achievable library projects used in their own libraries, including examples of some quick accomplishments. The projects reflect assessing cross-departmental foundation courses, benchmarking an institution’s data with peer data and presenting that in a dashboard, handling non-generalizable data, working with advisory boards or focus groups and gathering student feedback. All of the projects might be accomplished relatively quickly in a new assessment librarian’s first year, or they could fit in with other responsibilities that those interested in assessment have. While the examples are from academic libraries, other libraries could adapt the projects for their own organization.
