Library Assessment Conference
Monday, October 26 – Wednesday, October 28
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the University of Washington (UW) Libraries have canceled the in-person Library Assessment Conference (October 26–28, 2020, in Rosemont, Illinois). Instead, organizers will hold a series of free virtual events over the course of several months in fall 2020 and early 2021.
The conference goal is to build and support the wide-reaching community of library assessment practitioners and researchers who have responsibility or interest in this broad field. The multi-day event is a mix of invited speakers, workshops, and contributed papers and posters that stimulate discussion and provide feasible ideas for effective, practical, and sustainable library assessment. Previous conferences have been held in Charlottesville, Virginia (2006, 2012); Seattle, Washington (2008, 2014); Baltimore, Maryland (2010); Arlington, Virginia (2016); and Houston, Texas (2018).
Accepted papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings and poster presentations will be made available on the conference website. More information on conference sessions, including dates and session themes, will be added to the Library Assessment Conference website as soon as it is available.
