Two librarians from UNC Charlotte presented on assessing e-resources. They focused on Political Science but had a good protocol that could be applied to other subject areas. The liaison to that area worked w/ their E-Resources Librarian. They collaborated closely with teaching faculty to gain their input and used the data to cancel or promote underused resources. See "Give e-resources a chance" on the program.
Librarians from MIT presented on "Design Thinking." They worked with teams of students for a marathon over 2.5 days to gain input on library space design. It was somewhat similar to our Idea-Thon and working with the IARC students a few years ago but with a different twist.
One of the most valuable presentations was from Grand Valley State. The Information Literacy librarian conducted a study to examine the impact of library instruction on student retention. She found a definite correlation. Interestingly, she used a method similar to what we've started here by recording the Genie course code for each instruction session. She then worked with a statistician to compare it to retention rates. Because she is working toward a publication she didn't post her PPT on the conference web site but will send it to individuals. I've requested it and will share.
I presented with Crystal Baird from SACSCOC about how libraries can use assessment to prepare for accreditation.
