Program assessment includes a variety of methods and measures. In addition to informal feedback, participants are asked to give feedback at the institution level using the institution's course evaluation survey.
Course-related instruction The library offers course-related instruction sessions taught by librarians. These sessions may be general or discipline-specific. They are usually initiated by the course instructor and may incorporate a predetermined assignment emphasizing a particular information literacy competency or competencies.
Assessment: Faculty instruction session evaluation form; Student instruction session evaluation form; librarian Peer-evaluation form
Workshops – Various workshops are offered throughout the semester on a range of topics and research tools. These are geared toward a variety of populations including graduate students, international students, research teams, staff, and faculty.
