Library Assessment Conference 2018 to Convene in Houston, Texas
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the University of Washington (UW) Libraries announce the next Library Assessment Conference will be held in Houston, Texas, in the fall of 2018. The University of Houston (UH) Libraries and Texas A&M University Libraries will serve as hosts for the event, working with the conference sponsors on local arrangements and meeting planning.
Since 2006, the Library Assessment Conference has convened every two years. The conference goal is to build and support the wide-reaching community of library assessment practitioners and researchers who have responsibility or interest in this broad field. The multi-day event is a mix of invited speakers, workshops, and contributed papers and posters that stimulate discussion and provide feasible ideas for effective, practical, and sustainable library assessment. Previous conferences have been held in Charlottesville, Virginia (2006, 2012); Seattle, Washington (2008, 2014); Baltimore, Maryland (2010); and Arlington, Virginia (2016).
Planning for the 2018 conference will begin immediately and details about the event will be posted on the Library Assessment Conference website. The exact dates of the conference will be announced this spring.
