Provosts' Perceptions of Academic Library Value and Preferences for Communication: A National Study
Murray, Adam; Ireland, Ashley
College & Research Libraries, v79 n3 p336-356 Apr 2018
While many studies have been conducted under the auspices of calculating academic library value, there are no large-scale studies into the perceptions that college or university provosts have of library value, nor are there studies into how provosts prefer library value data to be communicated. This study addresses that gap through a national survey of public and private university provosts/chief academic officers, with attention to size of the institution, accrediting agency, and the status of librarians at the institution. An understanding of provosts' perceptions of library value and preferences for communication aid library directors as they seek to leverage the findings of value studies for library advocacy.
