Proposal submission deadline approaching for Library Assessment Conference 2014 -

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the University of Washington Libraries, and the conference planning committee are accepting proposals through January 17, 2014, for the Library Assessment Conference: Building Effective, Sustainable, Practical Assessment, to be held in Seattle, Washington, August 4–6, 2014.

The goal of the biennial Library Assessment Conference is to build and further a vibrant library assessment community by bringing together interested practitioners and researchers who have responsibility or interest in the broad field of library assessment. The conference provides a mix of invited speakers, contributed papers, posters, pre- and post-conference workshops, and - new this year - lightning talks and panels that stimulate discussion and provide workable ideas for effective, practical, and sustainable library assessment. The 2014 conference builds on the success of the first four conferences held in Charlottesville (2006, 2012), Seattle (2008), and Baltimore (2010).

Proposals are invited as papers, posters, panels, and lightning talks (short papers) that cover any aspect of library assessment. The conference planning committee especially encourages proposals in collaborative assessment; digital libraries; information resources, collections, and e-metrics; learning outcomes; management information; methods and tools; organisational issues; performance measurement and measures; return on investment (ROI); services; space planning and use; special collections; usability; user needs; and value and impact.

Full details on submitting a proposal are available on the Library Assessment Conference website.
