Collaborative Efforts to Develop Best Practices in Assessment: A Progress Report

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Methods for assessment of digital libraries are not yet standardized; as a result, many are at a loss as to how to begin to assess costs, benefits, and usability. To address this crucial gap, after the 2014 DLF meeting the DLF Assessment Interest Group engaged the community to form working groups to address issues with citations, analytics, cost assessment, and user studies. This session will present progress made over the past year. Each of the four groups will present the work completed thus far, followed by a discussion with attendees to help clarify next steps and additional ideas.

Join us tomorrow for the Digital Library Assessment Lunch, hosted by the DLF Assessment Working Group.

My focus is on leveraging available resources, energy and interests to develop collaborative and often innovative solutions to problems we all face. My background is heavily technical, but my approach is very humanistic. I'm actively seeking opportunities in which I can best contribute to the field and meeting needs/improving services.
