15 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 290 2017 Conclusion Given the evidence presented here, academic library resources may prove to play an important role in students’ development of learning outcomes beyond information literacy. While research at our institution continues, we encourage all academic libraries to gather data on students’ use of academic library resources and connect those data points with other sources of data to better understand the potential impact of academic libraries on student outcomes.
