Title:Bridges and Barriers: Factors Influencing a Culture of Assessment in Academic Libraries
Author(s):Farkas, Meredith Gorran; Hinchliffe, Lisa Janicke; Houk, Amy Harris
Subject(s):assessment
academic libraries
organizational development
Abstract:Article "presents the results of a survey designed to understand what factors facilitate the development of a culture of assessment of student learning in academic libraries and what factors may hinder it. Unlike previous research in this area, which has focused on case studies and surveys with nonrepresentative samples, the authors conducted a systematic survey of academic libraries at four-year institutions in the United States and achieved a 42 percent response rate. The results suggest certain factors are highly associated with a culture of assessment and provide guidance to administrators and front-line librarians working to build such a culture."
