Every year libraries respond to statistical surveys from organizations such as ACRL and the National Center for Educational Statistics. Long on input measures, in many ways these surveys are duplicative except for slight differences in definitions of data elements. They are ripe for reform. The new imperative for assessment is to collect and report data that demonstrate the library’s contribution to student learning and its value to the institution and community it serves. Towson University’s Cook Library has embraced this challenge. It is developing new assessment strategies to document the library’s impact, whether through the correlation of library and institutional data or from value-oriented feedback.
