LibValue: Comprehensive Approaches to Defining Library Value webcast

This webcast, recorded May 9, 2013, provides a broad overview of methods used to estimate value in academic libraries and describes a study that calculated return on investment at the Syracuse University Library in 2010-2011. The presenter is Bruce Kingma, Professor in the School of Information Sciences and Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.

The LibValue project (http://libvalue.cci.utk.edu/) is a three-year study funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services to define and measure ways in which libraries create value through teaching and learning, research, and social, professional, and public engagement. LibValue is a collaboration among the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Libraries; and the Association of Research Libraries, with partners at Syracuse University and Bryant University.

This is the fourth in a series of six free webcasts on LibValue to be held in 2013.
