Library Performance Measurement in the UK and Ireland

This survey was a joint initiative between SCONUL and ARL that focused on assessment activities in UK and Irish academic institutions, and reflects a SCONUL desire to provide tools, techniques, and data for performance measurement and improvement through its Working Group on Performance Improvement. The survey was distributed to the 180 members of SCONUL in September 2008. Seventy-seven libraries completed the survey. All of the libraries that responded indicated that they engaged in various performance measurement activities beyond the annual collection of data for SCONUL.
