Oakleaf, Megan, Stone, Graham, Pattern, David, Bowles-Terry, Melissa, Peterson, Kate, Nackerud, Shane and Fransen, Jan (2013) Do or Do Not...There is No Try: The Quest for Library Value. In: Association of College & Research Libraries Conference, 10-13 April 2013, Indianapolis, Indiana. (Unpublished)

Librarians today can establish academic library value by linking library services and resources to the missions, goals, and needs of their institutions. Statistical correlations between student library interactions and established learning and retention measures offer one path to demonstrable library value. This panel reveals research results from three libraries that successfully followed this path, shares best practices for “doing” value research, and embraces the quest to both prove and improve the value of academic libraries.
