"LibraryJournal.com reports that the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Board of Directors approved a comprehensive revision of the association’s Standards for Libraries in Higher Education (SLHE) in October. This revision is meant to provide a stronger framework by which research libraries can demonstrate their value while facing growing scrutiny in a tough economic environment.

“These standards differ from previous versions by articulating expectations for library contributions to institutional effectiveness,” said University of Nevada-Las Vegas Dean of University Libraries Patricia Iannuzzi, who chaired the SLHE task force. “They also differ structurally from the previous version by providing a comprehensive framework using an outcomes-based approach, with evidence collected in ways most appropriate for each institution.”

To access a copy of the approved standards as well as to sign up for a introductory webcast, please go to:
