Assessing service quality : satisfying the expectations of library customers by Peter Hernon( )

19 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academic and public libraries are continuing to transform as the information landscape changes, expanding their missions into new service roles that call for improved organizational performance and accountability. This extensively revised and updated edition explores further the ways technology influences both the experiences of library customers and the ways libraries themselves can assess those experiences. With a focus on real-world application, the authors challenge conventional thinking about the utility of input, output, and performance metrics by suggesting new ways to think about the evaluation and assessment of library services; explain service quality and customer satisfaction, and demonstrate how they are separate but intertwined; identify procedures for qualitatively and quantitatively measuring both service quality and satisfaction; encourage libraries to take action by presenting concrete steps they can take to become more customer-centric; and offer a range of customer-related metrics that provide insights useful for library planning and decision making, such as surveys and focus groups. This book shows how to nurture an environment of continuous improvement through effective service quality assessment

It focuses on assessing institutional quality and effectiveness, as well as responding to the increased demand for greater accountability at all levels of institutional activity. Contributors include individuals from assessment associations and regional accrediting bodies, faculty members who have prepared plans for implementation of outcomes assessment, and librarians engaged in such assessment, providing a unique variety of viewpoints. Concrete examples offer practical guidance in determining assessment options and establishing and applying assessment programs. - Publisher
Revisiting outcomes assessment in higher education by Peter Hernon( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revisiting Outcomes Assessment in Higher Education compliments rather than updates Hernon and Dugan's 2004 Outcomes Assessment in Higher Education. As with its predecessor, it offers a cross-campus diversity of voices: contributors hail from various segments of higher organizations, an academic vice president, academic deans, a higher education consultant, faculty members, and librarians. Individually, they shed light on how their corner of the higher education universe views, facilitates, and substantiates outcomes assessment. Together, they document what is known about outcomes assessment in the middle of the first decade of the new century, as institutions and their programs take ever-firmer steps from anecdotal evidence to more rigorous diagnosis and reporting

Engaging in evaluation and assessment research by Peter Hernon( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluation and assessment are integral parts of the research process. Research is something that all library managers need to know how to do, but the evaluation and assessment results are only valuable if they also understand how to apply them to managerial decision making, planning, and communication with library stakeholders. Increasingly, libraries must address questions of accountability, efficiency, effectiveness, and impact -- the extent to which a program causes positive changes in the target population. All of these issues are important to library managers and those to whom they directly report. With the heightened interest in customer expectations and increased focus on service quality and customer satisfaction, evaluation and assessment research provides the essential methodology for library managers to obtain meaningful answers. This book introduces evaluation and assessment; explains evaluation and assessment research as a formal inquiry process with individual components; and demonstrates the use of the evidence gathered for planning, decision making, and accountability
Financial management in academic libraries : data-driven planning and budgeting by Robert E Dugan( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Financial Management in Academic Libraries explores the connection between financial management and accountability, effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability, and demonstrates how to capture them in a realistic, data-supported budget. Among the different units of an academic institution, the library has an advantage in that its managers can link these concepts to the library's infrastructure, its staffing, collections, services, and technology. Focusing on these components can enable everyone in the library to work to achieve organizational sustainability over time and advocate for their place in the institution"--Provided by
