Project Description: A key component to any organization focused on assessment is an assessment plan. In the process of transitioning from an Assessment Working Group to the Assessment Team, the Libraries desired to move beyond the list styleFive Year Plan that the working group had been utilizing, to a document with more granular detail to assist the Libraries in meeting its assessment needs. As a result of the Assessment Plan Environmental Scan, project, the Libraries moved one step closer in the development of a more robust planning format. The project report recommends a plan situated within theStrategic Goals of the University, and the Libraries Strategic Goals, focused on meeting the needs of the communities served. It attempts to provide a framework where each unit/team/department contributes to centralized library outcomes in the areas of student learning, collections, and library facilities.
