On Friday, October 26, 2012, CLIC is hosting “A View from the Field: Overview of Recent Assessment Activities in CLIC Libraries,” 9:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at Archbishop Ireland Library, UST. This program, which is free to all CLIC library staff, is our Kick-Off Program for CLIC’s Year of Assessment. To register to attend this program, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Kick-Off Program will begin with an introduction to CLIC’s “Year of Assessment” by CLIC Board Chair, Dan Gjelten. Following Dan, each CLIC institution will provide a brief summary of local assessment activities to give the CLIC community a broad overview of what other CLIC libraries have been doing. At the end of the morning, attendees will be asked for their feedback on what specific assessment topics they would like to see offered in the CLIC workshop series. CLIC library staff not in attendance at the kick-off program will be able to submit their suggestions via an online survey.
The Kick-Off Program ends at noon. If you would like to stay later to discuss assessment ideas with your colleagues, there will be an optional brown-bag lunch session following the Program wrap-up.
During the 2012-13 fiscal year, CLIC will host a series of professional development workshops focusing on various assessment issues. The series will culminate on June 4, 2013, with a CLIC-wide Assessment Conference featuring Megan Oakleaf, author of ACRL’s The Value of Academic Libraries.
