Library Value

The Centre for Information Behaviour and the Evaluation of Research (CIBER) has been commissioned by Research Libraries UK to help develop a set of evidence-based advocacy materials for library policy makers in higher education. The research will review and analyse the available material, mainly statistical, that relates to the contribution that libraries make to the student experience, and especially satisfaction. The study is led by Dr Ian Rowlands and will report in August 2010.

Thanks Wendy,

Should be interesting looking at their findings.

If we tried to do the same thing here, I don't know if we'd have enough data to work with. Perhaps by looking at what they report we can decide if we need to collect additional types of data to show evidence of our value?
