The DePaul University Library is committed to continued reflection and improvement. Our assessment efforts are aligned with the Library's Strategic Plan ,
as well as the Plan for DePaul 2024
. We collect and analyze data across all library departments to identify trends and support data-informed decision-making. As part of our membership on the University’s Assessment Advisory Board and Co-Curricular Learning Assessment Committee, and with support from the Office of Teaching, Learning and Assessment
, we conduct an annual assessment of our learning outcomes. We also strive to meet the needs of our students, faculty, staff and community members through a variety of methods and to understand and improve their experience using our resources and services.
A brief description of the institutional environment for assessment programs is provided in Walter (2014) .
