*Justifying the Library: Using Assessment to Justify Library Investments*

Assessment exercises for institutional libraries are frequently a
double-edged sword; they’re as readily used to justify cuts as they are to
bolster budgets. This NISO virtual conference provides expert insights into
how data gathered in the normal course of activities can be leveraged to
demonstrate value to the parent institution. Data represent the raw
material for building your case. What data are available? How is their
quality? What is the appropriate context for persuasively presenting that
data to deans, provosts and other administrators? This virtual conference
will address these and other key concerns.
Confirmed speakers include:
- · *Steven J. Bell*, Temple University
- · *Nancy Turner*, Temple University
- · *Jocelyn Wilk*, Columbia University
- · *Ken Varnum*, University of Michigan
- · *Jan Fransen*, University of Minnesota
- · *Carl Grant*, University of Oklahoma
