The Evaluation of Operational Effectiveness and Its Use in the Design of Information Systems. Research Reports Series A, Number 4.
Bath Univ. of Technology (England). Univ. Library.
The Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences project (DISISS) of the University of Bath, England, has recently completed evaluations of three programs: (1) a library staff digest intended to inform personnel of the inner workings of the library; (2) an information system designed to assist professionals and private individuals working with young people; and (3) an indexing and abstracting service--Geo Abstracts. The assessment is done largely through the use of surveys, but cost-benefit analysis and use studies are discussed as tools to further refine the evaluation process. (EMH)
