Using assessment data to make more informed decisions and communicate value is an essential part of what we do to improve our libraries. However, it can be a daunting process to plan, collect, and draw conclusions from assessment data of library programs and collections usage.

Join Krystal Wyatt-Baxter, Head of Assessment at the University of Texas Libraries, and Jacqueline Bronicki, Assessment and Statistics Coordinator at University of Houston Libraries, as they provide their respective insight and tips on programmatic assessment and collections analysis. By the end of this one hour webinar, you will have a better idea of what you can do to begin planning for continuous assessment in your library.

Register here and hope to see you next week!

Description: Session 3 in the series, “From MARC to Linked data will focus on preparing for MARC data transition, with a focus on embedding HTTP URI in MARC data. The subfields that are defined to record HTTP URI, such as $0, $4, etc., will be covered. Also discussed will be how to transform revised MARC data in BIBFRAME via available transformation tools. The process attempts to show that the preparation of moving MARC data toward a linked data environment, i.e. BIBFRAME, is iterative.

Additional sessions in this series include:

Scheduled for Thursday, October 13 at 2:00pm ET. An ACRL – Choice webinar sponsored by ProQuest

“We need to remake the perception of our entire library, proving that we’re more than just a warehouse for books,” a librarian from a university in Topeka shared, a goal that many of the 400+ librarians who responded to a recent ProQuest survey about space reclamation priorities are working towards.

During this session, we’ll walk through the preliminary findings of the survey, providing insight into how libraries are innovating their physical spaces to support hands-on learning.

We will be joined by Tesse Santoro, Head Librarian, Dobbs Ferry Library at MERCY College and Mark McCallon, Associate Dean for Library Services, Abilene Christian University Library. They will highlight the rising popularity of makerspaces in academic libraries and share the challenges they’ve faced as they’ve evolved to support this trend. We’ll end with a working session that will give you the opportunity to tell content aggregators what types of content your library needs to provide the best level of service possible to your users during these changing times…
