Ithaka S+R, OCLC Research to examine how universities, libraries are changing

“How do you measure the impact of a library when the number of books on its shelves is no longer its defining characteristic? The research arms of Ithaka and the library collaborative OCLC have launched a joint project to find out. Over the next 14 months, researchers with the organizations plan to survey the higher education landscape to identify how colleges and universities are differentiating themselves, explore the different types of services libraries are investing in, and help college librarians articulate the new ways in which they are creating value for their institutions.
“Our research question is: What happens when libraries differentiate themselves in terms of services, not collection size; are there multiple models of success?” a project description shared with Inside Higher Ed reads.” (via Inside Higher Education)
