Assessment at Florida State University Libraries:                                            

Assessment is primarily concerned with developing, administering, measuring, analyzing and disseminating qualitative and quantitative data on library use and services. These data contribute to a collective knowledge-base for understanding
our customers, helping us make informed decisions about services, spaces and collections at FSU Libraries and demonstrate the impact and contributions to faculty and student success outcomes. Assessment is a collaborative and 
departmental effort within the library, on campus, and beyond. It coordinates, collects, stores and disseminates data to local and national organizations, such as the Association of Research Libraries, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and National Center for Educational Statistics. The department exists to consult and equip library staff with the knowledge, tools, and support needed throughout the research 
process and to be vigilant of new and innovative methods for data collection, analysis, and documentation.
