ACRL Plan for Excellence Implementation Reports - Due 7/21

Dear CoPA Leaders,

On behalf of the ACRL Board, I would like to thank you for the contributions your unit has made in advancing the ACRL Plan for Excellence during the 2016–17 membership year. We now need your help documenting ACRL’s accomplishments over the past year. Thank you for ensuring that the work of your unit is properly represented.

By Friday, July 21, please use the online form to report the activities, programs and initiatives that your CoPA unit carried out in support of the ACRL Plan for Excellence from July 2016 through June 2017.  

Suggestions for preparing your report:

  • Please review the ACRL Plan for Excellence before submitting your unit's report to ensure you select the strategic objective that best matches your unit’s activities/programs/initiatives.
  • This report should cover unit activities/programs/initiatives completed July 2016 through June 2017.
  • Please review the Plan for Excellence Implementation Report template. Note: This PDF is for reference purposes only. Unit reports must be submitted into the online form.

Submitting your report:

  • Submit responses through the online form.
  • Please do not report the same activity/program/initiative more than once. While an activity may fit into multiple areas, please select the area it best matches.
  • If you do not have any activities to report for a specific strategic objective, it’s okay to simply leave that section blank.

To submit the report, you must click through each page (even if you don't have activities to report) until the final page where there is a "Submit" button. Reports should be submitted by Friday, July 21. In late August, staff will notify units when synthesized reports are available.

Need a starting point? You can review your unit’s 2016 reports and 2015 reports (each group is bookmarked in the PDFs).

Thank you very much for your work over the past year. If you have any questions about the report, please let me know.
