IMLS interim narrative report for ACRL program "Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success"
As part of its Value of Academic Libraries Initiative, a multiyear project designed to assist academic librarians in demonstrating library value, the Association of College and Research Libraries began work in October 2012 on “Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success” (AiA), undertaken with partners the Association for Institutional Research and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities. A National Leadership Demonstration Grant of $249,330 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funds the AiA program for three years. The AiA program builds on the outcomes of an IMLS 2011 National Leadership Collaborative Planning grant by designing, implementing, and evaluating a professional development program to build the competencies of librarians for demonstrating library value.
The attached interim narrative report, submitted to IMLS on Thursday, October 31, 2013, describes the first year of grant activities, 10/01/12-09/30/13.
