Evidence Base has been commissioned by SCONUL (Society of College, National & University Libraries) to work on a Value and Impact Study. The main aim of the study is:
to review existing studies, projects and statistics on the value and impact of HE libraries to develop resources for use by SCONUL Executive Board and Executive Director, and for SCONUL members
The project started this week, and will continue until December. Over the course of the next few months we’ll be involved in both primary and secondary research to bring together information on the value and impact of academic libraries. Further information about the study including the methodology, deliverables, and timescale is available on the project blog: http://sconulvalueandimpactstudy.wordpress.com
If you’re aware of any studies, projects, toolkits etc. that it would be useful for us to include, or if you’re doing any work in your own library to demonstrate value and impact, we’d love to hear from you – please use the contact form to let us know.
