NISO Training Series, Assessment Practices and Metrics for the 21st Century - October 19, 2018 - Session One - Basis of Assessment in Academic Libraries: An Overview

This opening session will provide the rationale for and benefits of assessment training. Administrators, librarians and others working in the academic environment need to base decisions on user and usage data gathered from a variety of library services and systems. This initial overview lays the ground work for understanding what’s different about library assessment in the 21st century, the variety of means for conducting assessment in the library, the skill sets needed, and the challenges to be faced – whether those be issues of handling sensitive personal data or unanticipated resistance from co-workers.
