Comment on ACRL research agenda
Project website: http://www.oclc.org/research/themes/user-studies/acrl-agenda.html
Draft agenda: http://www.oclc.org/content/dam/research/themes/acrl-research-agenda-nov-2016.pdf "First, a brief literature review is provided to overview some of ACRL’s work on the value of academic libraries and to describe how this work informed development of a codebook, which was then used to identify the themes of 357 relevant readings. Next, an overview of methods is provided, followed by a presentation and discussion of findings from content analysis of the readings and analysis of the focus group interview transcript. The paper concludes by outlining key takeaways from the work completed to date by the team." Thus this document is useful for those interested in academic library impact, even if you don't want to give feedback.
