The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded LibValue Project (http://libvalue.cci.utk.edu/) is a 3-year project devoted to developing tools and measures for demonstrating academic libraries’ value and contributions to the work of higher education. In addition to investigating academic libraries’ support for faculty research, teaching and learning have been a major focus of effort. This presentation will feature a panel of members of the LibValue Management Team and project participants discussing findings from several projects devoted to this endeavor, specifically:

• Student Learning and the Student Experience:

Panelists will report on two threads of research related to e-resources’ role in supporting student success, including student e-resources usage during a multi-session series of library research skills workshops as well as findings from multiple surveys of undergraduate students regarding their use of resources in the University of Tennessee-Knoxville Library Commons.

• Teaching:

Panelists will present research conducted at the University of Tennessee and the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to investigate instructors’ use of electronic resources in support of their teaching. Responses from nearly 400 Graduate Teaching Assistants, part-time-, and tenure-line faculty indicate heavy (and increasing) reliance on both libraries’ electronic resources for course preparation and assigned readings. The presenters will highlight similarities and differences between responses at UNCW, a regional institution with the Carnegie Classification of “Master's L: Master's Colleges and Universities (larger programs)" and the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, classified as “RU/VH: Research Universities (very high research activity)”.

Program attendees will leave the session with more information about the LibValue Project as well as ideas for conducting similar assessment projects at their home institutions. Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
