During the LYRASIS 3rd Annual Member Summit at the Nashville Public Library held on October 24, 2018, we met each of our 2018 Catalyst Fund recipients and heard about their innovative projects. We’ll post each presentation over the course of the next few days. Is this a project that might benefit your organization?

In this video, Marcia Rapchak, previous Head of Teaching and Learning Teaching, Research, and Engagement, provides the overview of Duquesne University’s Catalyst Funded project, “Quantitative Research Institute for Libraries”. This project’s goal is to develop a curriculum and provide an institute to prepare librarians and library staff for the quantitative research required to show their value, assess library services and student learning, and better serve their communities. Cathryn Miller, Social Sciences Librarian, is the current lead for the project.
