(Registration 1.45-2.00)

Coventry University London

On 7th December ALISS (Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences) will be holding a half-day conference on evaluation. The speakers represent HE and non-HE sectors, providing case studies of their methods and experiences of different types of evaluation. Delegates will have an opportunity to discuss the approaches, challenges and implications

Speakers will include:

  • Beth Clark, Head of Digital Scholarship and Innovation, LSE. In September 2017 LSE Library opened the newly refurbished student space on the Lower Ground Floor. The design for the refurbishment was based on UX research and student feedback so it was important to adopt these same methods when evaluating the success of the project.
  • Joanna Tate, Service Assessment and Development Manager, LSE will share her experiences of how lean process reviews developed in a university library have been applied in a wider university setting. She will describe the development of a general purpose toolkit which arose from this.
  • Jo Wood, Library and Information Service Manager. –Will discuss her mixed methods approach to reviewing the impact of her specialist library and information service for social workers in Cafcass
