The mission of the Assessment Programs and Collection Strategy department at the University of Tennessee Libraries is to facilitate continual improvement in the Libraries’ services and resources by empowering all library staff to make evidence-based decisions; and to illustrate the value of the Libraries to the University and the community we serve.
We achieve our mission in a variety of ways, supporting and consulting with people throughout the Libraries on assessment projects, and also conducting various assessments ourselves.
The Collection Strategy unit works with departments throughout the Libraries, as well as subject librarians and faculty to provide information resources to support teaching, research and public service needs of the UT community.
This department is also the home of the Strategic Achievement Review (StAR) initiative. We work to keep the Libraries’ strategic goals in the forefront of everyone’s minds, by systematically tracking and communicating progress toward strategic goals.
The Assessment Programs and Collection Strategy team is assisted by advisory committees of faculty and staff from across the Libraries.
