Mills Presents Paper at Library Assessment Conference

Research Librarian Jenny Rushing Mills presented a paper and poster at the Library Assessment Conference in Charlottesville, VA, Oct. 29-31, titled “Project RAILS: Rubrics, Results, & Recommendations.” Along with librarians from Syracuse, Towson and the Universities of Washington and West Virginia, Mills presented the initial results of Project RAILS (Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills). The purpose of the project is to help librarians assess student information literacy skills exhibited in “artifacts of student learning” like research papers, worksheets or portfolios. At Belmont, rubric assessment of information literacy skills has been conducted in nursing and pharmacy courses and in First Year Writing.
