Title: Our 'Special Obligation': Library Assessment, Learning Analytics, and Intellectual Freedom

Description: Academic libraries face heightened demands to quantify their contribution to the mission of their parent institutions. For many colleges and universities, this means demonstrating the library's impact on measures of student success, such as final grades, GPA, and on-time graduation rates. Higher education institutions are adopting learning analytics systems which can track students' progress through a course or program of study, and collect and analyze data on students' use of campus resources and services - including the library. But what does this mean for the library's commitment to patron privacy, confidentiality, and intellectual freedom? During this webinar, you will learn about learning analytics and current trends in quantitative library assessment. We will then revisit the ALA Code of Ethics, the Library Bill of Rights, and ALA Library Privacy Guidelines to consider the library's role in institutional research and assessment using learning analytics. Fundamentals of FERPA will also be introduced. We will conclude with suggestions for library assessment strategies that respect patrons' informed privacy choices.

Date & Time: Monday, April 3, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Presenter: Sarah Hartman-Caverly, Assistant Professor & Reference Librarian; Liaison for Allied Health, Emergency Services & Nursing, Delaware County Community College
