ANALYZING PRODUCTIVITY IN THE ERA OF ACCOUNTABILITY

ANALYZING PRODUCTIVITY IN THE ERA OF ACCOUNTABILITY Librarians are becoming more accustomed to using output and performance measures to assess library services. However, in an era of limited funds and increasing accountability, we also need to turn our attention to analyzing library productivity in terms of staff performance and dollars expended. We can benefit from sharing that information with other librarians in order to provide a basis for interpreting our findings. Useful data on productivity can be derived from current, published library statistics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Bottom Line: Managing Library Finances Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Librarians are becoming more accustomed to using output and performance measures to assess library services. However, in an era of limited funds and increasing accountability, we also need to turn our attention to analyzing library productivity in terms of staff performance and dollars expended. We can benefit from sharing that information with other librarians in order to provide a basis for interpreting our findings. Useful data on productivity can be derived from current, published library statistics.
