Library?s Efficiency, Impact and Outcomes

Statistical Evaluation and Other Methods as Tools for Management and

The radical change in the operational environment of libraries has set new
challenges for library leadership and management. The traditional method for
libraries has been collecting a substantial amount of statistical data. This is
no longer enough for modern management. New ways of analysing efficiency, impact
and outcomes measurement are needed to obtain better data and information for
marketing and managing as well as demonstrating the impact of libraries. In
addition to the quantitative data, one also needs qualitative data and methods
of identifying users? needs. Finally, combining different types of results and
data will provide new possibilities in fighting for the library?s resources and
meeting the users? service needs.
