This webcast, recorded August 15, 2013, describes how contingent valuation and Google Analytics can be used to measure the value of digitized special collections. The presenters are Ken Wise, associate professor, University of Tennessee Libraries; Gayle Baker, professor and electronic resources coordinator, University of Tennessee Libraries; and Martha Kyrillidou, senior director of statistics and service quality programs, ARL.

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 final in a series of six free webcasts on LibValue to be held in 2013.
