I presented on CORA at the 2016 Library Assessment Conference in Arlington, VA. Recurring themes at the conference included
data visualization using Tableau, assessment of library spaces, and learning analytics. Here are a couple of tweets about CORA from the LAC Storify:

 

Other things of note: Alan Carbery's information literacy developmental rubric found in the "Assessing Student Learning" presentation and Using Images to Understand Students' Approaches to the Research Process at the University of Nevada, Reno. Mary O'Kelly got a lot of attention when she concluded her presentation Academic Libraries and Student Retention: The Implications for Higher Education by asking this question:

If student retention is correlated with library use AND with faculty engagement with the library AND with faculty who encourage student engagement with academic support services AND with student engagement with faculty AND with library-intensive high-impact practices such as undergraduate research, writing-intensive courses, and first-year experiences… is engagement with the library a high-impact practice?
