CFP: ALCTS CMS Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group at ALA Midwinter
Call for Proposals: ALCTS CMS Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group at ALA Midwinter
The ALCTS CMS Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group invites speakers to participate at the Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group session at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm.
The mission of the ALCTS CMS Collection Evaluation and Assessment Interest Group is dedicated to quantitative measures based on commonly defined data; managing information resources and developing institutional benchmarking; exploring, developing, and promoting the use of both descriptive data and outcomes/impacts data.
The theme of the session will be “Findings that surprised us”—an exploration of different case studies in which people’s data findings were unexpected, and how they used this data to shape their future work with their collections.
Proposed sessions should describe both how and why the data was gathered and how the data was used to spark decisions/changes in collection development. Proposals on both small and large scale findings are welcomed.
Presentations should be approximately 15-20 minutes in length.
Additional time will be allowed for questions and discussion.
Please send abstracts of proposals to Amelia Brunskill (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, December 14, 2012 (previous deadline has been extended). If you have questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks so much,
