CFP: 2016 FACRL Annual Program: Prove It! Demonstrating Effectiveness with Data (Florida - October 2016)

Call for Proposals for the 2016 Florida Association of College and Research Libraries (FACRL) Annual Program:  Prove It! Demonstrating Effectiveness with Data

In a time of increasing accountability, academic libraries must demonstrate their effectiveness with hard data. How do you demonstrate your library’s impact on departmental or institutional goals, particularly those that pertain to student success or retention? After identifying impactful goals, what benchmarks has your library or institution identified to illustrate effectiveness? How are you collecting meaningful data? How do you convey the resulting data and its implications to your stakeholders?

FACRL is seeking proposals for presentations and poster sessions for the 2016 FACRL Annual Program to explore the need to identify, collect, and disseminate impactful data in today’s academic library environment. 

Presentations should be 45 minutes in length with time provided for questions. The annual program will be held on Friday, October 28 at the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts in Orange Park, FL.

Proposals are due by August 5, 2016. Acceptance emails will be sent on or before August 26, 2016. Inquires may be sent to the FACRL President, Christina Will at christinawill@sjrstate.edu or (386) 312-4152. All presenters must register and pay for conference attendance.
