Welcome to Project Outcome

Welcome to the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries peer discussion space! We encourage you to use this space to interact with other users by posting questions, survey ideas, and discussion topics. Share your strategies for effective outcome measurement and learn from your peers: How are you measuring learning outcomes at your library? How have you or how do you intend to incorporate Project Outcome for Academic Libraries into your assessment workflow? What have you found to work best? What hasn’t worked for you?

What is Project Outcome? Project Outcome helps libraries easily measure their patron outcomes, which are one piece of the assessment puzzle. Measuring outcomes helps libraries understand the specific benefits that result from their services or programs. Outcomes can be quantitative or qualitative, and are often expressed as changes that individuals perceive in themselves. They answer the question: “What good did we do?”

Learn more at ACRL 2019 in Cleveland: Staff and members of the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries Task Force will offer five one-hour workshops throughout the day on Friday, April 12. Workshops start at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4:15 p.m. No advance registration is necessary.

This is an exciting project. Our library piloted the Instruction survey and we are looking forward to using this and other surveys in the future.
