The Lib-Value Project funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is conducting an in-depth exploration of academic libraries’ value. The research work is featured in the spring 2013 edition of Quest magazine, http://quest.utk.edu/2013/maximizing-value/. Chancellor’s Professor and Director of the CCI Center for Information and Communication Studies Carol Tenopir is co-principal investigator on the project.
“This important project comes at a time when universities are facing financial challenges. The knowledge gained from this study will help many academic institutions maximize the value of their library investments. For UT, it will be of great value as we strive toward our Top 25 goals,” said SIS Professor and Director Ed Cortez.
