Contexts for Assessment and Outcome Evaluation in Librarianship ( )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Assessment and outcomes evaluation have become increasingly important in librarianship. Although initially used in educational contexts to measure student learning, the strategy has migrated to other contexts such as hiring, employee development, overall organizational and institutional successes, measuring the outcomes of projects and operational changes, and self assessment at the personal level. This growing emphasis is partly due to increasingly stringent requirements that funds are used effectively to improve services and operations. The current economic climate and retrenchments in non-profit agencies, have raised the need for assessment and outcomes evaluation to a critical level. 'Contexts for Assessment and Outcome Evaluation in Librarianship' focuses not on the how of undertaking assessment and outcomes evaluation, but rather on their successes and failures in various contexts in which these tools have been and will be used

Final technical report on development of non-roman alphabet capability for library processes by William David Penniman ( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1979 OCLC received a grant for the development of non-Roman alphabet capability for the OCLC Online System. Four approaches were evaluated from a technical viewpoint, and a resource analysis was conducted for each approach. Based upon technical and economic analyses, it was concluded that at this stage the costs far outweighed the benefits. As a result, the project was terminated. Future development of the capability by OCLC will depend upon subsequent cost/benefit analyses." Leaf ii
