Advances in librarianship : contexts for assessment and outcome evaluation in librarianship( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 44 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
Mergers and alliances : the operational view and cases by Anne Woodsworth( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 37 of "Advances in librarianship" presents detailed examples of local and regional mergers and collaborations and serves as a companion to Volume 36 which presented a comprehensive broad review of the factors that lead to mergers and other alliances, and the methods used to ensure effective and successful collaborations. While corporate mergers make headlines, library and information science examples, especially at regional an local levels, have less visibility. This volume demonstrates that such efforts are occurring in libraries, among LIS degree programs, and enterprises including networks and consortia. They are occurring as economic conditions around the world mandate consolidation and/or collaboration among agencies and enterprises to reduce or curtail expenditures

Research report on an overview of a proposed monitoring facility for the large-scale, network-based OCLC on-line system by Wayne D Dominick( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report addresses the critical importance of measuring and evaluating information systems functioning within computer network environments. The focus is on the significant benefits associated with using automated monitoring as the primary information system measurement mechanism within such computing architectures. The large scale, network-based, state-of-the-art oclc online system is utilized as the information system environment in support of these research and development activities. Within this environment an overall structure for a generalized, automated monitor design is proposed. Monitoring specifications are illustrated at the network supervisor level, the applications processor level, and the database processor level within the oclc system network architecture. The monitoring concepts, techniques, and parameters presented within this report represent a strong foundation for information system measurement, analysis, and evaluation. When combined with complementary measurement facilities such as controlled benchmarks and synthetic programs, simulation models and controlled user interface experiments, a total comprehensive methodology for information system evaluation can be realized. The principles of automated monitoring have proven their extensibility and generalizability across numerous types of information systems. It is concluded that automated monitoring should be viewed as an essential self-measurement capability within all future information system designs. (Author/RAA)
Final technical report on development of non-roman alphabet capability for library processes by William David Penniman( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 18 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

Modeling and evaluation of on-line user behavior : final report to the National Library of Medicine by William David Penniman( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation of search patterns associated with the medline database had four primary objectives: (1) to refine the stochastic process method of evaluating user behavior; (2) to examine user search behavior exhibited when selecting documents sets; (3) to identify factors that affect the patterns of user behavior; and (4) to use data from the National Library of Medicine (nlm) medline system to develop a model of ineffective user behavior. Samples of online session protocols obtained from NLM's online system elhill-3 were processed in three major phases: the recovery of individual medline user sessions from the transaction tapes, parsing the individual user and system transactions to assign a unique activity code, and the analysis of user/system behavior using the parsed sessions. The data obtained were analyzed by user id, daily usage, and level of activity, as well as selected variable analysis and fragment analysis. Findings are outlined and compared with prior studies, and the results of data analyses are summarized for each of seven hypotheses. The methodology and results are detailed, and a need for additional research in the area of search effectiveness is indicated. Twenty references are listed. (Raa)

Current issues in libraries, information science and related fields by Anne Woodsworth( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is unusual in that the theme is quite broad in scope yet focused on a specific topic; innovations and boundary-pushing studies in areas not usually found in library literature. It represents a look at the periphery of the field surveyed in previous volumes and presents chapters grouped into two categories: professional issues and transforming services. First section chapters include the challenges facing librarians in an age of litigiousness and threats to academic freedom, educating ethical leaders for the information society by adopting practices from business, valuing intellectual capital assets by looking at the role of librarians in a knowledge society, and emerging practices of open peer review as a means of achieving a "new science". In the second section chapters include the effects of terminology on health queries by analysing users health literacy and topic familiarity, an analysis of academic social networking via a case study of users information behaviour, a study on redefining services and spaces for graduate student success by creating a "scholars' commons", and a final chapter on serving adults and teens in social spaces within a "virtual branch"
