Academic libraries are learning how to demonstrate their value via evidence based assessment. This is a complex process for the long term road ahead, which is currently under heavy construction. In the meantime, this presentation will guide you through thinking about practices you are currently performing and how to evaluate them in order to provide a more immediate overview of your value and support of academic learning on your campus. Lavery Library has chosen five areas of service to share during this presentation. These five areas each demonstrate a different influence the library has on facilitating learning. They also demonstrate trends within the library which inform decisions for change as well as value sound bites to be shared with stakeholders. Learn how to take a creative and inspiring approach to the services you provide your patrons and show your library's value at the same time!
