New Mexico State University’s Outcomes Assessment II Committee, which focuses on student life, recently awarded the NMSU Best Practices Outcomes Assessment Award 2011 to the NMSU Library. The Library also received this award in 2009.
The committee said that the award is presented to a department or unit that exemplifies the spirit of assessment outside the classroom. The Library received the award for its work in re-evaluating modifications it had made in the use of space in order to determine if the changes were beneficial.
The award was accepted in behalf of the Library by Interim Associate Dean Norice Lee and Reference & Research Services Department Head Cindy Pierard at NMSU’s Fall 20011 convocation ceremony.
