Duane Webster oversaw the Association of Research Libraries' (ARL) Statistics and Measurement Program as it evolved into the Statistics and Assessment Program. During his 20-year tenure as ARL's executive director, Duane was instrumental in the creation of ARL's Web-based Interactive Statistics and played a leadership role in the development of a library assessment tool kit, StatsQUAL, that includes: LibQUAL+[TM]; DigiQUAL[R]; MINES; ClimateQUAL[TM], and Effective Sustainable and Practical Library Assessment (ESPA for Libraries). Duane saw assessment as a means of articulating the value that libraries add to a research institution, and a significant part of his career was dedicated to that pursuit. (Contains 35 notes.)
