This manual is a first effort to begin to identify, describe, and develop procedures for assessing various aspects of digital reference service. Its overall purpose is to improve the quality of digital reference services and assist librarians to design and implement better digital reference services. More specifically, its aim is to: assist librarians and others to develop ongoing programs of assessment of digital reference services; provide a practical set of guidelines and procedures for how assessment of digital reference services can be done; and develop standardized procedures and definitions of statistics and measures that may be compared across different libraries. The first chapter is an introduction that provides a short background discussion on digital reference service, outlines the need for digital reference evaluation, and describes the purpose and format of the manual. The second chapter describes the various statistics and measures selected for inclusion in this manual. The chapter is divided into the following sections: Descriptive Statistics and Measures; Log Analysis; User Satisfaction Measures; Cost; Staff Time Expended; Other Assessment Options; and Quality Standards. Each statistic and measure is described in terms of these general categories: Definition, Rationale, Data Collection Procedures, and Issues and Considerations.

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the role of external funding in the development of public library network resources and services, their identification, and their benefit and impact, particularly as they affect the digital divide. The study was conducted between February 2001 and January 2002, employing a range of data collection techniques, including site visits, focus groups, surveys analysis of E-rate data sources, local library and state library reports, documents from external funders, and other material. Key findings and issues include: (1) lsta (Library Services and Technology Act) is a model federal program for funding libraries; (2) E-rate funding is essential to local operations, but needs fine-tuning; (3) leveraging external support to serve those impacted by the digital divide; (4) equipment was not enough; (5) coordination was necessary and the State Library delivered; (6) someone must have authority and responsibility for seeking external funds; (7) remembering the poorest counties and communities; (8) maintaining sustainability; and (9) understanding situational factors. Conclusions, next steps, and recommendations are presented. Appendices include lsta state plan requirements and assurances, sld (Schools and Libraries Division) analysis method and description of tables, site visit participants, selected study instruments, and advisory committee members.

Public libraries and the Internet 2002 : Internet connectivity and networked services by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study updated statistics about public library outlet and system Internet connectivity and network services using the 1997 public library dataset produced by the National Center for Education Statistics through the Federal-State Cooperative System. Using geographic information system-based techniques, a research team at the Florida State University geocoded 16.004 public library outlets in terms of their poverty (defined as less than 20%, 20%-40%, and greater than 40%) and metropolitan status (urban, suburban, and rural). From the 16,004 geocoded outlets, the consultants drew a sample of 1,500 outlets in proportion to their percentage in poverty and metropolitan status categories. Data collection occurred via a Web-based survey. Sixteen tables present survey findings in the following areas: (1) connectivity and public access; (2) Internet services provision and implementation; (3) public library system funding; (4) digital reference services; and (5) training services. The report concludes with a summary of findings and recommendations. A copy of the online survey form is appended. (Mes)
