Book Review: A Practical Guide to Information Literacy Assessment for Academic Librarians

A Practical Guide to Information Literacy Assessment for Academic LibrariansA Practical Guide to Information Literacy Assessment for Academic Librarians by Carolyn J. Radcliff

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this book.. so much so that I ordered a copy for my collection as well as a personal copy so the library copy wont just hide in my office.

Very practical and easy to read- the perfect manual to get acquainted with basic assessment techniques. What I found most useful is the section on interpreting data and writing the final assessment report. While I have done both of these before, its a nice refresher for those that have experience and an excellent blue print for newbies.

I highly suggest purchasing this book if you are directly involved with assessment efforts at your library.
