Academic libraries and the academy: Strategies and approaches to demonstrate your value, impact, and return on investment
Library collections at Middle Eastern universities have usually prioritized teaching over research resources. Zayed University is now transitioning toward research. This chapter addresses the methodology of electronic resources assessment and systematic data analysis. The central point is to provide an overview of how electronic resources adequacy is measured and thereby determine the correlation between the level of utilization of resources and growth of research activities in the university to ensure the best use of funding on the resources. The chapter concludes with a summary, a balanced assessment of electronic resources collection, and a road map for future directions of the library.
