ROI and Value Bibliography

Dec 21, 2010

The new website of the Lib-Value project features a searchable database of over 400 journal articles and other publications that address the "value, outcome, and return on investment in academic libraries."  You can search the databases by keyword or browse lists of authors and descriptors.  The UIUC Library's groundbreaking study of the library's impact on campus grant revenue is among the important works gathered in this bibliography, which is sure to grow as more and more libraries and researchers address the pressing question of ROI.
