UT Libraries Assessment


The mission of UT Libraries Assessment is to provide guidance and support to UTL divisions in assessment planning, data collection, and data analysis so that we can make well-informed decisions, communicate our impact, and continuously improve.


Assessment and User Experience Cross Functional Team

The Assessment and User Experience Cross Functional Team convened in November 2016. Team members will define and implement data collection and assessment practices which will facilitate continuous improvement of the in-person experience at the UT Libraries.  The team will create standard workflows and tools for UTL data collection and foster a culture of ongoing assessment in UTL.  The team will establish and implement best practices and core expectations to meet the key needs of in-person users in all UTL locations.

Team Members:

  • Bonnie Brown Real
  • Joe Dobbs
  • Dave Gilson
  • Sarah Morris
  • Krystal Wyatt-Baxter, Chair

Continuous Improvement Framework

UTL units are currently drafting assessment plans that fit within UT's framework for Institutional Assessment. Plans for the 2017-2018 year will be complete by September 2017.
