Assessment Accelerators

Assessment Accelerator sessions are short classes teaching practical knowledge on an assessment topic with colleagues. These presentations may share innovative strategies or approaches related to or necessary for library assessment; orient other library professionals to new perspectives to consider in their practice; or update colleagues’ knowledge to meet current needs. Session presentations are 75–90 minutes.

These sessions are free to attend but require pre-registration. Some sessions have a limited capacity. Please visit the Assessment Accelerators page for session descriptions and registration limits.
