About this talk

Join our librarian presenters in this webinar as they share their unique stories about library value starting with themes that resonate with their stakeholders. They will discuss how it is important to measure and communicate the impact of library resources in terms of value of investment (VOI) rather than just return on investment (ROI). They will show examples of how to work with individual researchers and departments to spotlight their efforts and initiatives via better understanding, assessment, visualization and reporting of impactful outcomes of research and clinical care. And they will show how institutions can come together to pool data and share a powerful report on the impact of library instruction on student retention and academic success. TOPICS • Going beyond usage to impact of resources • Tips for setting up an assessment program • Tracking publications with a full range of metrics • Enhancing research impact and the visibility of research • The impact of information literacy on student success • Connecting library programs to campus priorities such as student retention PRESENTERS Melissa Bowles-Terry, Head of Educational Initiatives, University of Nevada, Las Vegas Libraries Melissa Goertzen, Consultant and Information Manager Karen Gutzman, Impact and Evaluation Librarian, Northwestern University Galter Health Sciences Library and Learning Center
