Assessment of Learning in Academic Libraries – References

As part of my project for the Assessment Leadership Academy, I am writing a review of the relevant literature. My project is titled Developing an Academic Library Learning Assessment Plan, and these are some of the most helpful references I have come across so far. Megan Oakleaf’s work, specifically, is really great.
