Share Your Experience!

 

The ACRL Project Outcome Editorial Board invites you to share your experiences in using the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries toolkit in your libraries. The resources in the toolkit include case studies to help users learn from other libraries engaged in outcome measurement. Case studies should be approximately 1,500-2,500 words in length and focus on how your library has used the Project Outcome toolkit. Case studies are accepted for review on a rolling basis. Please email acrl@projectoutcome.org if you wish to submit a case study!

The toolkit is a great free assessment resource for many purposes and projects, but it is not the best tool for every project. This resource breaks down some scenarios of when you might want to use Project Outcome and when you might want to find another tool to use.
