Assessment Round Table (ART)
The purpose of the Assessment Roundtable (ART) is to develop a culture of assessment in Utah libraries by promoting the collection, analysis, and reporting of data that describes libraries’ function and value for communities, strategic planners, and decision-makers. It has four primary activities:
- Explain how data can inform value description, decision-making, and strategic planning for library operations (services, spaces, resources, patron interactions).
- Provide professional development to teach librarians how to assess library operations.
- Collaborate with other libraries on similar assessments.
- Disseminate assessment findings to library personnel and at workshops, conferences, and in journals.
