Attached is a PDF of a grid intended to explore options and formats for Resource Committee contributions to ALA, LLAMA, and our Assessment Section colleagues. Some details such as deadlines and contacts are noted (ex: Annual conference program submission deadlines, Annual/MidWinter pre-conference deadlines, "Hot topics in assessment" discussion group contacts, etc.).
Options/formats are listed as columns; potential Resources Committee topics (such as discovery tools, facilities, collections, etc.) are listed as rows--the committee can explore which intersection cells are of most interest this year.
Broader context for our new committee’s work:
LLAMA believes that librarians in all types of libraries foster continuous individual discovery and learning and serve an essential function in a democratic society. Serving as the foremost professional organization committed to developing present and future library leaders, LLAMA provides members with knowledge, skills, resources, and tools that help members foster individual and organizational excellence in library leadership, administration, and management. LLAMA and our member leaders at all levels seek to create and develop innovative communities that foster diversity and inclusion. Developing present and future leaders in a holistic manner is part of our commitment to the enduring value of libraries in society and the people and communities we serve. Below are the foundational statements of our association.
To support and develop future and current leaders and managers at every level of library and information services in all types of libraries.
• Leadership development and continuous learning
• Exemplary and innovative service and practice
• Socially responsible management
As of July 1, 2016, LLAMA MAES will become the LLAMA Assessment Section.
The Assessment Section focuses on library assessment, evaluation, and measurement regardless of type of library or activity. We emphasize the role of assessment in demonstrating the impacts of our libraries. Our work includes recommending and developing tools, methods, guidelines, standards, and policies and procedures. We plan and deliver webinars, programs, publications, special projects, and discussion group(s). We seek opportunities to collaborate within our Section, within LLAMA, and beyond. To help orient us to which topics are explicitly identified within which Assessment Section committees:
Assessment Section Committees
To make decisions and provide leadership for the Assessment Section.
Competencies and Methods
To cultivate and expand knowledge of assessment competencies and methods.
Marketing and Communication
To promote awareness of the Assessment Section and its activities through internal and external communication using the website, social media, ALA publications, and other avenues such as meet-ups at assessment conferences.
To explore and foster emerging and best practices in assessment of organizational structure and culture, and business practices, with an eye toward advocacy and stakeholders’ interests.
To explore and foster emerging and best practices in assessment of physical and digital resources such as collections, facilities, websites, and discovery tools.
To explore and foster emerging and best practices in assessment of public services, public programming, access services, library spaces, research, teaching, and learning.
Hot Topics in Assessment Discussion Group
To provide a forum for members interested in discussions about measurement, assessment and evaluation in libraries. Meets annually during the Midwinter Meeting.

Notes from Special Meeting of the 2016-2017 LLAMA/Assessment Section/Resources Committee
Saturday, June 25, 2016, 9:30-10am, at ALA Annual Conference in Orlando
Attending: Jeffrey Belliston, Rich Paustenbaugh, Rachael Elrod, Helen Look, John Wiggins.
This was an unofficial meeting and all other members RSVP’ed their regrets in advance.
John Wiggins served as chair and recorder.
1. Meeting begin with a short round of introductions and individual review of roster provided by Assessment Section Chair Anne Cooper Moore.
1.1. With five out of eleven members present, committee noted intention was to start discussions to share with full committee for further discussion and decisions in early July.
1.2. ACTION ITEM: John will send all members a Doodle poll for our first meeting (conference call).
1.3. ACTION ITEM: At first full meeting, members will review initial conversations, continue discussions, plan and implement a move to finalize leadership, and identify how we will explore which program opportunities to pursue.
1.4. ACTION ITEM: John will ask members to discuss/confirm a regular monthly conference call to manage committee progress.
2. Leadership: Discussion addressed co-chair and vice-chair leadership models:
2.1. The co-chair system denotes two leaders selected to share leadership duties and share responsibilities for only the current year.
2.2. The vice-chair system denotes two-year-long leadership commitments that overlap, with the vice-chair from one year becoming chair the following year and a new vice-chair selected.
2.3. Among those present, five of five supported consideration of a vice-chair model with two of the five also comfortable with the co-chair model.
2.3.1. Among the three who didn’t voice support for the co-chair model, the main notes were experiences where only one co-chair was actually active.
2.3.2. Support for the vice-chair model focused on managing succession of leadership to ensure success of longer-term program planning processes.
2.4. Two members present expressed interest in serving as leaders. We’ll see if there is additional interest from other members at our first full meeting and decide a process for selection.
2.4.1. Note: members who are currently listed as serving on the Resources Committee for one year (completing the second year of their term under the revised organization) are definitely eligible to renew for up to two more service periods (that is, to serve an additional four years) and so all members are eligible to serve as vice chair this year/chair next year. This was confirmed by Anne Cooper Moore immediately after our meeting
3. Scope of Resources Committee’s charge. Discussion focused on our committee’s charge and identifying which topics are included in our charge and which topics we might need to request clarification about.
3.1. Facilities (Resources) vs. Library spaces (Services). In an earlier conversation, MAES Executive Committee members suggested that we might observe this as facilities equivalent to available building spaces, and library spaces (in the charge for the Services Committee) might focus on services supported within the spaces. Currently, the committee interprets this to mean that, for example, assessment of electrical outlets might be in scope for our committee, as well as general study spaces (furnishings, arrangement) and self-service equipment such as laptop kiosks.
3.2. Resources in general. Discussion noted that we might assume that broader library resourcing, such as library budget and library staff, are included in our charge.
3.3. Overlap/opportunities with other committees. Members noted that there is overlap between our committee’s charge and those of other committees, and these provide opportunities for collaboration on programming:
3.3.1. “Facilities”—with LLAMA BES (Building & Equipment (?) Section)
3.3.2. “Discovery Tools” and “Websites” with LITA
3.3.3. Discussion group format events with our Assessment Section Members-at-Large who manage the Hot Topics in Assessment discussion at MidWinters (or on our own at Annuals and/or MidWinters)
3.3.4. Publication outputs with LLAMA (contact: Fred Reuland)
3.3.5. Webinar outputs with LLAMA’s Continuing Education Committee
3.4. ACTION ITEM: John will confirm some of the above with the Assessment Section Executive Committee and report back.
4. Brainstorming program approaches/committee outputs.
4.1. Assessment of Resource Committee:
4.1.1. What impact do we hope to make on the Assessment Section/LLAMA/ALA?
4.1.2. How will we know if we are successful or not? What does success look like?
4.2. Inclusion of opportunities for new professionals
4.2.1. When specific program initiatives are identified, advertise in LLAMA’s New Professionals Section (NPS) for an individual to associate/support each program/project to gain experience and to learn about the Resources Committee.
4.3. Broadening LLAMA and Assessment Section participation beyond academic librarians. How can we improve scope and appeal of programs and volunteer opportunities? Ideas generated included:
4.3.1. Ensure program descriptions focus on and attract other participants
126.96.36.199. Use language that speaks to other settings—for example, public libraries do assessment but don’t necessarily use the word assessment to refer to that work
4.3.2. Develop programs that employ a panel with speakers from different settings/perspectives
4.4. Identify best practices. Ideas generated included:
4.4.1. Research “resources” topics together as a group
188.8.131.52. Identify case studies
184.108.40.206. Develop bibliographies
220.127.116.11. Track emerging practices
18.104.22.168. Review what other groups are doing
22.214.171.124.1. PLA (public libraries)
126.96.36.199.2. SLA (special libraries)
188.8.131.52. What isn’t covered and needs covering (assessment gaps)?
4.5. Promote/spotlight best practices, techniques, themes
4.5.1. Individual/teams who have done good work
4.5.2. Examples of good work
4.5.3. “Things are changing”-what is new or what is different
