Abstract: Academic library administrators and assessment librarians need to align strategic planning and assessment efforts with their University’s planning as a strategy to show their value and contributions to the campus. At a Higher-Research Activity University, a new Chancellor began a strategic planning process in fall 2016 with a focus on “big ideas” and “giant steps.” The plan emphasizes student, knowledge and regional transformation in three areas: Health and Wellness, Vibrant Communities and Global Connections. Units were asked to crosswalk their strategic plans with the University’s and include metrics to show how they measure success. The UNCG University Libraries submitted several goals that support student and knowledge transformation through information literacy, student employment opportunities, learning spaces and open educational resources. Specific metrics provided concrete evidence on goal attainment. In addition, the Libraries developed assessment measures to provide additional evidence of its contributions to the strategic plan. This session will provide direction on how libraries can construct and align their goals with their University’s strategic plan, identify metrics and create assessments that show their value and contributions.Southeastern Library Assessment ConferenceAtlanta, GA November 2017
