Librarian's Role in Student Learning Assessment

Check out this paper, An Essential Partner: The Librarian's Role in Student Learning Assessment, co-authored by Debra Gilchrist, Dean of Libraries and Institutional Effectiveness for Pierce College, and Megan Oakleaf, Assistant Professor, iSchool at Syracuse University.

In a recent posting, Bob Pacheco, Assessment Chair at MiraCosta College says:

Not only do librarians identify and assess outcomes in their own courses and training sessions, but they also act as indispensible bridges between classroom and online instruction and the burgeoning amount of information that undergirds the curriculum.   Librarians are essential interlocutors between the learner and the information to be mastered, helping students separate the academic wheat from the chaff.
