Statement of Purpose
The purpose of this interest group is to foster the skills, knowledge, and experience of members and others in the practices of 1) library assessment and 2) library and information science research.

These two practices seek to positively affect library practices and outcomes by promoting research-based decision making in individual libraries and in the profession as a whole. Members share a common interest in the techniques of qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis.

By joining together, RAIG members further their common interests and goals by exchanging ideas and information, collaborating on projects, and creating learning opportunities for themselves and others.
