"In the UK, Best Value and other initiatives are requiring public sector organizations to examine the quality and relevance of their services. Many are using the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Business Excellence Model for this purpose. Library managers and trainers will need to implement such programmes in order to thrive in the new climate. This new self-assessment tool offers the means to do just that." "This publication takes account of the context in which library services operate and reflects the particular requirements of the sector. It is essential reading for information practitioners and administrators in the public and academic library sectors and beyond, and has relevance internationally as well as in the UK. It is also an invaluable textbook for students of librarianship and information studies."--Jacket

Checking the books : the value and impact of public library book reading by Jackie Toyne ( Book )

The research had three objectives: 1. to investigate and identify the library's role in developing and promoting reading, 2. to determine and demonstrate the positive contribution of literature to society and the individual and 3. to establish the kind of data required by policy makers as evidence of the value of reading. The data suggest that reading imaginative literature provided by the public library, enriches the lives of many people and has the potential to influence many more. The combined methodological approach used in this study hopes to demonstrate the value and impact of reading, and to have the potential to make the value of a basic public library service more visible to policy makers and professionals alike
