Assessment examines how library services and resources impact and are perceived by users, and guides strategic planning discussions and development of future acquisitions and services. Assessment is fundamental to positioning your library within your organization and effectively demonstrating how it furthers your institution's goals. And it can be more of an art than a science, using the qualitative and quantitative data available to you to show your library's alignment with the needs and mission of your organization.
