In 2014, SAA and RBMS appointed joint task forces to address the challenges that archival repositories face related to metrics and assessment. The task forces are drafting proposed metrics and standards, but calls for how to implement data gathering continue. This session will share case studies on the implementation of data gathering from the ground up, metrics and assessment in instruction and reference, and identifying the best and most efficient ways to quantify resources for assessment and decision making. The session will also address the transition from manual data gathering to tools like Aeon and LibInsight and the administrative outcomes of these changes. Chair: Wesley Chenault, Virginia Commonwealth University Speakers: Adriana Cuervo, Rutgers University Jessica Lacher-Feldman, Louisiana State University Amy Schindler, University of Nebraska at Omaha
