Research & Learning: Assessment in R&L

ACE Assessment Program

In 2014, the library assessment program was expanded to work more explicitly with the ACE Directorate. The assessment librarian works with the ACE leadership team to establish a robust assessment practice to better understand the performance of the services offered by the directorate. In 2017, assessment was moved back to administrative services, under the Deputy Librarian.
