  • Assessment helps all library faculty and staff to take action, monitor and improve library services, identify changing patterns in user needs and information usage, and market or promote library collections and services to the campus.
  • Current projects include creating the library Student Outcome Assessment Plan (SOAP), producing assessment toolkits, managing SAILS, serving as outreach representatives to COLD, WASC, and other professional organizations, and responding to statistical reports and surveys.
