The in-person 2020 Library Assessment Conference has been canceled. Instead of an in-person event, conference organizers will hold a series of free virtual events featuring accepted papers and key assessment themes. These short sessions will be spread over several months. All accepted papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings and poster presentations will be made available on the conference website.
These awards recognize individuals who have made substantial contributions to effective, sustainable, and practical library assessment as evidenced through presentations, publications, methods, service, advocacy, and other work. The 2018 award recipients were Bill Wilson and Ethel Himmel and Steve Hiller.
Travel Awards are offered to students and early-career professionals from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who have demonstrated a strong interest in assessment and have the potential to contribute to the profession by deploying and developing innovative assessment and evaluation methods and strategies.
