In order to measure the library's positive impact on the college community, Berkeley College Library's Outreach & Marketing Committee designed an assessment workflow using a LibInsight form, which allowed them to effectively assess and analyze programming ad outreach efforts, which are aligned to the institutional goals and the library’s operational goals. Participants will learn about our library’s strategic method of reshaping our assessment processes and how they created an effective data collection form with LibInsight, all which work well for a multi-campus institution.
