The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) charged a Task Force with developing Standards for Proficiencies for Assessment Librarians and Coordinators. In response to a higher education environment with increasing accountability and diminishing resources, library administrators have responded by assigning assessment duties to librarians or creating assessment librarian positions to assess the value of the library and create a culture of assessment. The Standards describe the proficiencies assessment librarians need to be successful in their jobs.
