Web-based Course: Demonstrating Your Value
Services and programs of academic health sciences libraries can impact student learning, faculty instruction, researcher productivity, and patient care. How can you describe that impact when many other departments are competing for the same, limited funds? To position itself for competitive advantage, a library must commit to practical program evaluation, user-centered assessment, and data-driven decision making.
The web-based course Demonstrating Value: Can Journals Compete with Mouse Cages In Institutional Budgets? will review strategies for practical evaluation and user-centered assessment. After completing this course, you’ll be better prepared with the right data when a budget administrator asks, “How do I decide between journals for the library and mouse cages for the research program?”
