Working together: evolving value for academic libraries


Working together: evolving value for academic libraries

December 2011 to June 2012

LISU was commissioned by SAGE to undertake research to investigate the value of academic libraries for teaching and research staff. The project aimed to provide the academic library community with a greater understanding of the connections between academic libraries and academic departments, and to identify ways to improve those connections through the identification of examples of good practice. The research provides a global perspective on the issue of library value, and involves eight case studies of good practice drawn from the UK, US and Scandinavia, supplemented by wider surveys of academic librarians in the case study regions. The participation of academic libraries which are delivering good and/or innovative support services to teaching and research staff was welcomed.
