Library Assessment

This page serves as the place for record keeping and document depository of the York College Library assessment activities including plans, reports, and any other related information.

Library assessment activities become more important as we strive for excellence. Ongoing assessment provides valuable information about library operation as well as user needs. Based on the assessment data, we can make changes or refine our practice to improve the quality of the library.

There are three areas that are assessed regularly: information resources, user services, and user education.

  • Information Resources include collections of books, periodicals, databases, and related materials
  • User Services include circulation, reference, and interlibrary loan
  • User education includes information literacy workshops

There are also areas that are evaluated as needed, such as space and furniture.

We use two types of assessment, direct measures and indirect measures.

  • Direct Measures: Information Literacy Pre-test and Post-test
  • Indirect Measures: York College survey, ACRL Statistics Survey, and IPEDS Survey

This LibGuide was created in January 2019. The purpose is to store library assessment-related information in one place for easy access.
