Happy three-month birthday to Project Outcome for Academic Libraries! We’re so glad you are here with us.


Upcoming Learning Opportunities


Tuesday, August 6th (1pm Central Time): Join us on for a free webinar about measuring the learning outcomes of library instruction using Project Outcome. The presenter, Eric Ackermann, chaired ACRL’s Project Outcome for Academic Libraries Task Force and is head of Reference Services at Radford University in Virginia. He will describe what the Project Outcome surveys are designed to measure and case studies of their use for library instruction. He will also highlight how these tools can be implemented to complement existing assessment work in academic libraries. Consider in advance, and come prepared to share, your current instruction outcomes and assessment methods. Register online here.


If you missed our introductory webinar, “Outcome Measurement Made Easy,” a recording is available online. NCompass Live, a production of the Nebraska Library Commission, will be hosting another live presentation on July 17: register here.


In-person workshops

In the coming months, we have workshops scheduled at conferences across the US and internationally. Check out the events page for a full listing, which will be updated as more dates are confirmed.


If you don’t see your state and would like to bring a workshop to a conference near you, more information about how to do that is available here.
