In this workshop attendees will learn about using the new Project Outcome for Academic Libraries surveys and resources. Project Outcome is a free toolkit that helps libraries measure four key learning outcomes – knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness – across seven library program and service areas. It provides academic libraries of any size the means to easily measure the learning outcomes of their programs and services and to use that data as the basis for improvements and advocacy.

Attendees are advised to bring a laptop or tablet to be able to use Project Outcome for Academic Libraries on their own device during the session.

Attendees will: 

  • Find out how Project Outcome can help you measure meaningful learning outcomes in academic libraries.
  • Learn about using the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries toolkit, from administering surveys to visualizing results.
  • Get tips on how to put your data to work in improving library services and advocacy.
