EVENT: What Are We Paying For?

Location: Sherrill Library (Lesley University) 89 Brattle Street Cambridge, MA 02138

Description: Libraries strive to offer users an extensive array of content and services, often in the face of diminishing budgets and limited staff resources. When growing expectations meet limited resources, we need to make tough decisions. As you manage and evaluate your electronic collections you may find yourself asking, "What are we paying for?" Does the value of that content or service justify the outright and hidden costs of providing it? The 2019 Spring program aims to explore assessment strategies and share how libraries are meeting the challenges of determining, and conveying, not only return on investment, but value on investment.
