The MiALA Michigan Community College & Assessment Interest Groups are co-sponsoring a one day pop-up conference that will focus on using the ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education for assessment. The aim is to help guide academic libraries on demonstrating their value and showing their impact to campus constituents.
