The Library Assessment Conference 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.
The Association of Research Libraries and the University of Washington Libraries, the conference co-sponsors, welcomed nearly 600 attendees to the 2018 conference. 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.
