Abstract: Academic libraries are actively exploring reliable methods to demonstrate their value and impact on student success and retention to campus administrators and governing bodies. As many campuses moved from the teaching to learning paradigm they employed the AAC&U’s essential learning outcomes as outlined in their Liberal Education and America’s Promise project. Many universities utilize high impact practices in the effort to improve retention, persistence and success. Rigorously researched, these practices have proven successful. Libraries participate in many high impact practices through information literacy programs and collaborations with student affairs, service learning and undergraduate research. One way to demonstrate library contributions to student success is to align closely with these successful high impact practices and document activity.
