The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the University of Washington (UW) Libraries will hold the next Library Assessment Conference on Wednesday–Friday, December 5–7, 2018, in Houston, Texas, at the Westin Galleria Houston. The University of Houston (UH) Libraries and Texas A&M University Libraries will serve as hosts for the event, working with the conference sponsors on local arrangements and meeting planning.


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); and Arlington, Virginia (2016).

The 2018 conference program includes pre- and post-conference workshops, paper and poster presentations, practicums, and panels. More information on the conference, including registration, venue, and program information, can be found on the Library Assessment Conference website.


Registration is open until November 14, 2018. Create an account and register online.
