Dear SC Members,
Andrea Falcone, Chair of the Standards for Libraries in Higher Education Review Task Force, sent us the draft “Standards for Libraries in Higher Education (SLHE)" and Transmittal Form for Draft ACRL Standards Guidelines Framework yesterday. Attached please find the files.
The SLHE, adopted in 2011, are designed to guide academic libraries in advancing and sustaining their role as partners in educating students, achieving their institutions' missions, and positioning libraries as leaders in assessment and continuous improvement on their campuses.
The standards is a framework for library planning and assessment, particularly in regard to providing guiding principles, performance indicators, outcomes and metrics for libraries to use in a variety of circumstandces as they work with faculty and students in higher education setting, achieving and measuring institutional learning outcomes.
We will review each of the principles, its associated performance indicators, outcomes and metrics, make sugguestions, and vote acceptance or non-acceptance of the standards. We need 4 people to vote in order to have a quorum. Please review and respond before October 18, 2017.
Thank you very much indeed!
Chair, Standards Committee
Reviewed and approved with no changes. 10/5/17 KOQ
Accept with minor revisions.
My feedback on the transmittal form:
My feedback for the Standards:
I agree with Nancy that the Standards need revisions.
My feedback on Standards:
Suggested wording for Appendix 1: Sample Outcomes
I advise to add the following to this Principle: “The Commons include alternate media services; hardware and software designed to alleviate vision, hearing, cognitive, and mobility impairments; consulting for web accessibility; and presentations and training on accessibility best practices.”
I advise adding the following to this Principle: “Libraries provide . . . continuous change; appropriating adequate funding to hire adjunct library personnel if necessary to meet the needs of the community.”
1.6 – Should read, “. . . time-to-degree . . . .”
3.2 – Should include, “. . . courses, assignments, and learning management systems (LMS).”
Nothing to add to what has already been documented.
3. Under personnel: If possible, the document should include a statement on staff commitment toward diversity.
I am good with approving this with the stated corrections provided by Amanda and Nancy.

This may be nitpicky, but why in the Sources Consulted are some of the links blue and some black? They should be consistent.
With that fix, I see nothing wrong and approve the document.
Please tell the committee we appreciate all the hard work they have done on the document and subsequent revisions. I approve the document.
Hi Katherine, Nancy and all,
Thank you so much for your review of Revised ACRL SLHE (Version 11/20/2017). I checked the Sources Consulted before I sent the document to you. That is why some of the links blue and some black. The document itself is OK. I think we can approve this document (Version 11/20/2017). Please cast your vote as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your hard work. We are really working great together as a team!! As of Dec. 5, 2017, ACRL Standards Committee voted unanimously to the approval of drafted ACRL SLHE (Version 11/20/2017) and its supporting document. I am looking forward to working with David Free, and the task force chair, Andrea M. Falcone for the approval by the ACRL Board late next week. Thanks a billion!
