*About the Webinar*
The sixth webinar in NISO's Demystifying Standards series will focus on
Performance Measures for libraries and archives, in particular how to
translate data into service improvements.
What are concrete steps we can take to measure our library's progress,
help researchers assess their impact, and improve outcomes? If you've
ever asked yourself--or been asked--this question, this webinar can
help. This event will cover specific performance measures and real-world
application of these measures to assess performance and enhance your
programs or services. The webinar will review both the current state of
performance measures and where improvements are needed as well as
include specific case studies of ongoing performance assessment programs.
The Performance Measures webinar will feature presentations from:**
-- Johan Bollen, Staff Researcher, Los Alamos National Laboratory,
Research Library. Bollen is the principal investigator for the MEtrics
from Scholarly Usage of Resources (MESUR) project
(www.mesur.org/MESUR.html) whose objective is enriching the toolkit used
for the assessment of the impact of scholarly communication items, and
hence of scholars, with metrics that derive from usage data.
-- Dianne L. Carty, Head of State Aid & Data Coordination, Massachusetts
Board of Library Commissioners. Carty is the chair of NISO's Z39.7
Standing Committee that is responsible for the ongoing maintenance and
updating of the standard, Information Services and Use: Metrics &
statistics for libraries and information providersóData Dictionary
