2016 Annual Program:
Prove It! Demonstrating Effectiveness with Data
In a time of increasing accountability, academic libraries must
demonstrate their effectiveness with hard data. How do libraries
demonstrate their impact on departmental or institutional goals,
particularly those that pertain to student success or retention? After
identifying impactful goals, what benchmarks are used to illustrate
effectiveness? How are libraries collecting meaningful data? How do
libraries convey the resulting data and its implications to
stakeholders? This program will explore these questions.Conference Information

Carolyn Moritz is a student at Florida State University and is enrolled in the MLIS program. Caroline notes that her projected curriculum for the library studies program at FSU will focus heavily on presenting data to audiences via web platforms and digitally curating information in a compelling (and sometimes persuasive) manner. Carolyn writes that data holds significant value to the public sector for the use in supporting grant proposals, strategic planning, and communicating goals and needs. She looks forward to learning from the presenters at the 2016 FACRL Annual Conference.
