Applying DEA Technique to Library Evaluation in Academic Research Libraries.
Shim, Wonsik
Library Trends, v51 n3 p312-32 Win 2003
This study applied an analytical technique called Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to calculate the relative technical efficiency of 95 academic research libraries, all members of the Association of Research Libraries. DEA, with the proper model of library inputs and outputs, can reveal best practices in the peer groups, as well as the technical efficiency score for each library. (Author/AEF)
