Professional practice standards help librarians produce professional identities, facilitate connections between libraries and higher education, and articulate claims for resources within our institutions. At the same time, standards flatten contextual differences between libraries, asking all libraries to account for outcomes that may not be appropriate. How can academic librarians productively navigate the tensions between the students we see in our classrooms and at the reference desk, and the need to produce metrics of success?
