We just published "Library Impact Practice Brief: Library Outreach Assessment" by Amanda Hornby & Emilie Vrbancic of University of Washington Libraries (UW) Odegaard Undergraduate Library.

As part of ARL’s Research Library Impact Framework initiative, the Odegaard Library’s Undergraduate Student Success Team designed an assessment framework for outreach to undergraduates. This practice brief describes the UW team’s outreach and assessment planning processes, the qualitative and quantitative assessment methods employed, the results of their assessment program, the lessons learned, and the best practices that emerged over several years and several iterations of conducting library outreach assessment. The brief presents both long-term reflections and most recent applications between 2016–2021.
