If you are interested in helping us develop best practices and guidelines for measuring benefits of digital libraries, please join our Digital Library Assessment Google Group and speak up! :-)

Past Projects

Stacy Konkiel, Michelle Dalmau and David Scherer have published a white paper on "Altmetrics and analytics for digital special collections and institutional repositories".

How best can we measure the benefits of digital libraries?

Potential steps to establish best practices and guidelines may include the following:

  1. Create operational definitions of value for digital libraries in general
  2. Assess alignment of benefits with institutional goals
  3. Develop standardized methods, comparable across institutions, to measure the benefits

The latter might include:

 * Altmetrics
 * Citations
 * Web stats and Google Analytics
 * Other measurements and methods (such as surveys, focus groups)
 * Address special challenges raised by aggregation

We shared resources on Assessment:Altmetrics.

We formed a working group on Assessment:Citations and another on Assessment:Analytics.

For several weeks in early 2015, Elizabeth Kelly requested feedback on proposed best practices for citing digitized content and institutional repository content using 3 major citation styles. Now Closed. She incorporated suggestions and recommendations.
