MINES for Libraries Final Report

This final report of a ground-breaking study summarizes findings on 34,000 randomly captured uses of electronic resources over a 12-month period from the 21 members of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). The results show the increasing value derived from the use of digital content, the emerging use of digital resources in the humanities, and the soaring use of e-resources from off-campus locations.

Living the Future: Organizational Performance Assessment

Organizational performance assessment is a practice-based framework that builds on the synergy between planning and assessment, and results in the discernment of impact and value. It promotes a set of practices that enable the library to effectively integrate planning, strategy, performance, assessment, and organizational development in order to advance the parent institution’s mission. This paper discusses some foundations of organizational performance assessment, useful practices, and examples from libraries that are―living the future.
