CACUL and The University of Calgary, Information Resources are pleased to sponsor the CLA 2005 Pre-Conference,

Creating an Environment of Continuous Assessment:  Practical Approaches for Academic Libraries

Whether you are a director in the administration offices, a manager responsible for specific services, or are a librarian on the front-line, this practical pre-conference workshop is of interest to everyone contemplating the idea of establishing (or enhancing) a program of continuous assessment.  Through presentation, discussion, small group activities and using the 2004 ACRL “Standards for Libraries in Higher Education,” participants will apply the principles of assessment and the techniques presented to their own library’s mission and goals.  While the context for this workshop is academic libraries, the process is applicable across multiple library sectors.  By the end of the day, you will have an understanding of how to apply the principles and techniques to your own library setting and be well on your way to establishing the basic framework for developing assessment plans based upon professional standards and your
institution’s mission.

Join Dr. Bill Nelson and Dr. Bob Fernekes in this full-day workshop that helps you translate your library’s mission and goals into a practical assessment strategy.
