Feedback form is now closed.
The undergraduate LEAP learning communities at the University of Utah measurably contribute to higher retention and graduation rates of participants, and academic librarians play a strong role as embedded partners. But how can widely individualized librarian contributions be assessed program wide?  This presentation will look at the information literacy standard SAILS and the new TATIL assessments as an embedded librarian evaluation tool.
