Ms. Goff has more than three decades of
experience in academic and public libraries, with specialization in
library instruction, instructional media and technology, database and
Internet searching, social science reference, local and oral history, genealogy, library advocacy and community outreach. One of her
goals is to make sure all CSUS students know how to get the most out
of their Web searches and know how
to evaluate their search results.
She is known throughout California libraries as a strong advocate for
integrating library and information competence into the curriculum in
public colleges and universities as well as in the K-12 level. She chaired
the Testing Subcommittee of the CSU Information Competence Assessment Task Force
and conducted beta-testing to help validate the Information
and Communication Literacy assessment instrument (a.k.a. iSkills and now iCritical Thinking) developed by the
Educational Testing Service (ETS)
in partnership with the California State University System. Her most recent grant project was an ICT Assessment to establish a baseline for evaluating Freshmen Information and Communication Technology literacy at her institution (see below).
Ms. Goff is active in a variety of professional library associations. She has an enduring commitment to professionalism within librarianship. She also believes that she has a responsibility to maintain the Proficiencies for Instruction Librarians recommended by ACRL/IS.
