The Lib-Value bibliographic database includes over 1000 individual items from library and information science literature as well as relevant material from such diverse disciplines as higher education administration, museum assessment, and environmental economics. Though primarily comprised of journal articles, the database also features web pages, books, conference presentations and papers, reports, and other materials. In addition to works presenting accounts of specific assessment projects, database users will find more general discussions of conceptual approaches to assessing value and return on investment, and descriptions of specific methods for evaluating the positive outcomes of providing a wide variety of resources and services.
The database can be searched, browsed by keyword or author, or “filtered” to retrieve records by author, type, or year. The Lib-Value team has also identified materials related to each area on the first two levels of our functional map for convenient browsing. Individual records can be exported into Bibliographic Management software and services.
