Recent Case Studies
Learn more about how libraries are using Project Outcome in two new case studies:
Nevada State College used the space survey to assess the impact of study rooms and the results led to improvements in other areas of the library as well.
Southern Utah University used the toolkit as a means to evaluate instruction to provide actionable results and the evidence of effectiveness needed for promotion and tenure documents.
First Annual Report
Project Outcome for Academic Libraries launched in spring 2019. A year later, we are pleased to announce the publication of a report on its development and first year of use in the field. Read the report and view the recording from our June 16th webinar where we shared an overview of its findings.
What is Project Outcome?
We help libraries understand and share the true impact of their services and programs with simple surveys and an easy-to-use process to measure and analyze outcomes. Project Outcome is a free toolkit offering libraries access to training, data analytics, and standardized surveys that measure outcomes in key library service areas.
