More on Value of Libraries

My recent article in Sirsi OneSource on the value of all types of libraries has garnered some nice comments. I am always interested in this type of research. Just recently Lorcan Dempsey at OCLC pointed me to a recent PDF report commissioned by from PriceWaterhouseCoopers by the LASER Foundation. Lorcan notes that the “report argues that public libraries have demonstrable impact and proposes ‘practical and consistent approaches to measuring impact'”.
We really need to do more of these studies and then shout the results from more than the rooftops!
Cool reading,
Stephen
