About the Conference

The Association of Research Libraries and the University of Washington Libraries are pleased to announce the 2016 Library Assessment Conference: Building Effective, Sustainable, Practical Assessment, to be held in Arlington, Virginia from October 31–November 2, 2016. The conference goal is to build and further a vibrant library assessment community by bringing together interested practitioners and researchers who have responsibility or interest in the broad field of library assessment. The conference provides a mix of invited speakers, contributed papers and posters, and workshops that stimulate discussion and provide workable ideas for effective, practical and sustainable library assessment. This biennial conference builds on the success of the first five conferences held in Charlottesville (2006, 2012), Baltimore (2010), and Seattle (2008, 2014).
