Reinventing Libraries: Reinventing Assessment
Innovative Practices and Ideas that Challenge the Status Quo

The conference will be held on June 6, 2014 at The William and Anita Newman
Conference Center at Baruch College. We invite submission of proposals for
presentations of papers and posters on innovative approaches to academic and
research library assessment, particularly those that challenge established
assessment ideas and practices. The conference will be national in scope and
will address the value of library assessment as a means to improve academic
programs, teaching, learning, and facilitating curricular and research
activities of students and faculty. The goal of the conference is to share
ideas and information on the vital topic of library assessment.
Break-out session topics will include:
• Information literacy assessment, including General Education and
learning outcomes
• Qualitative assessment (for example, ethnographic surveys and other
interpretive approaches that evaluate users’ behavior)
• Collection assessment, particularly digital collections
• Assessment of library design, furnishings and technology
• Evaluation of library services in support of online education
• Value and impact of the library on the greater community
