On Wednesday, January 27, we welcomed speakers from five Chicago-area institutions to an event focused on collections assessment. Topics ranged from assessing the use of a periodicals collection in area studies to the drastic reorganization of a junior high school library. The event included presentations, Q&A, and discussion.
This event was held at the Richard J. Klarcheck Information Commons at Loyola University's Lakeshore Campus.
