Interested in improving library services?  Then this CLA/CACUL 
pre-conference is just the ticket!

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.
