E-Metrics and Library Assessment in Action
Kinman, Virginia
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v21 n1 p15-36 2009
Digital resources play an increasingly important role in academic libraries, which must demonstrate their value to the institution and their impact on student learning outcomes in new and more compelling ways. This study examines 5 years of vendor-supplied e-resource usage data in conjunction with other library and institution measures. Results are compared to major findings from other researchers, with examples of how e-metrics can be incorporated into a broader assessment of the library's success in meeting the needs of its users. (Contains 6 figures and 1 table.)
