Choose Your Own Adventure Scholarly Communication Assessment Rubrics ($)


Suzanna Conrad, Emily Chan, Daina Dickman, Nicole Lawson


The workshop presenters will provide attendees with a draft developmental rubric that can be used to assess scholarly communication programs in academic libraries. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the rubric is a direct outcome of a series of focus groups with scholarly communication library practitioners, interviews with campus stakeholders, and a virtual national forum of experts convened to discuss the assessment of scholarly communication. The rubric is intended to offer libraries another avenue for evaluating the growth, maturity, and success of their local scholarly communication activities and services.
