Massengale, Lisa; Piotrowski, Pattie; Savage, Devin
College & Research Libraries, v77 n2 p227-235 Mar 2016
Engaging in ongoing assessment is key to libraries demonstrating their value to their institutions. This study is an initial step in a STEM library's long-term goal of measuring the library's connection to, and impact on, student academic success markers such as retention and persistence. Initial results showed that any library usage was always accompanied by a slightly higher achievement in GPA for the user. Results will serve as benchmarks for further study.
