Student, Faculty, and Staff Library Survey Results & Assessment Efforts

Assessment @ Your Library

Libraries have been counting check-outs, visits, and materials for over a hundred years. Jefferson College Library continues this tradition to help ensure that we have the high quality materials, services, instruction, and spaces that  improve learning. We look at raw data, we analyze curricular and co-curricular student learning outcomes, we see what resources are being used, and we research what resources are needed. We look at what is happening in our library and on our campus, at other libraries in Missouri, and at we look at national library and higher education trends. This guide will provide links to some of the raw data, analysis, and other assessment projects at Jefferson College Library.
