Posting Date: 
06 November 2015

Authored by Christina Drummond, Tom Clareson, Laurie Gemmill Arp, and Katherine Skinner, a new publication aims to introduce guiding principles and practices for CE/PD needs assessments from beyond the Library, Archives, and Museum (LAM) spheres of reference. A literature review section highlights needs assessment research from other fields (e.g., higher education, nonprofit training, etc.), drawing attention to models that could inform LAM practice. Existing LAM CE/PD needs assessment efforts are then contextualized against these models to inform future cross-sector CE/PD collaborations.
