Presenters include Steven Smith, Professor and Dean of Libraries; Gayle Baker, Professor and Electronic Resources Coordinator; and Teresa Walker, Associate Professor and Head of Integrated User Services.
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 second in a series of six free webcasts on LibValue to be held in 2013.
