**Apologies for cross posting**

We’re delighted to announce that our next training series — Assessment Practices and Metrics in a 21st Century Pandemic — starts on September 18. Running from 11.30am - 1.00pm ET for eight weeks, through November 6, the 2020 version of this popular course will explore planning, management, and assessment practices in libraries during COVID-19. Topics covered will include effective practices for planning for library spaces, collections, services, and strategic innovations, with guest lecturers focusing on what the shifts we are going through mean for the 21st century library and the way we assess and measure our success?

We’re happy to say that Martha Kyrillidou will once again be moderating this training series. As well as consulting on management, evaluation, assessment, and R&D activities, Martha is also a Research Associate at the iSchool, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and teaches Research Methods at Kent State University.

Martha will be joined by expert guest speakers including: C. Colleen Cook, Trenholme Dean of Libraries, McGill University; Elaine Louise Westbrooks, Vice Provost & University Librarian, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Bob Fox, Dean of Libraries, University of Louisville; Lorraine J. Harricombe, Vice Provost and Director, UT Libraries, University of Texas - Austin; and Karen Stiles, Senior Library Manager, The Open University.
