Undergraduate Assessment 360: Putting the Library in Context

Tuesday, March 09 | 4:00PM–4:50PM | Room 552 A
Session Type: Professional Development
During the 2009-10 academic year, the University of Connecticut Libraries is conducting a multipart quantitative and qualitative assessment of undergraduates measuring the technologies they use, how they seek information, where they do their academic work, and how the library serves (or doesn't) them. Building off both borrowed tools (Foster et al.'s "anthropological" assessments at the University of Rochester and Booth's technology survey at Ohio University) and homegrown ones, we will try to paint a more complex picture of our undergraduates, as well as their habits and needs.
