The ACRL Academic Library Impact (ALI) report defines strategic directions of research for the area of academic library impact on student success through six priority areas. These areas were developed through a literature review and interviews with primarily administrators and provosts. This research project seeks to address this limitation by surveying and interviewing librarians and researchers who conduct academic library impact research. We focus on two main questions: 1) What are the characteristics of the population of librarians and researchers who conduct research in this area? and 2) What are the thoughts and perspectives of this group in response to the ALI report? This presentation will discuss the results in order to explore the perspectives and experiences of librarians and researchers, particularly around their experiences conducting library impact research, and compare and contrast the responses between librarians and researchers versus administrators.
