Electronic Library Evaluation
The eVALUEd Project Team writes \"eVALUEd is a HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) funded project, based at the University of Central England. It has been set-up to develop a transferable model for e-library evaluation and to provide dissemination and training in electronic library evaluation. The project commenced in December 2001 and will complete in May 2004.
At this stage, we are conducting a survey to examine good practice in electronic library evaluation, which includes electronic information services, digital collections and virtual libraries. We have already conducted one survey covering all Higher Education Institutions in the UK and are in the process of conducting another of software and solutions providers. We would now like to extend this research to Libraries and Information Services based in other sectors and/or outside of the UK.
When all of this data has been collected and analysed, it will enable us to gain an accurate picture of digital library evaluation and to inform our subsequent recommendations as to how evaluation can be effectively organised and implemented.
We would very much appreciate it, if you would take the time to participate in this survey by completing our online questionnaire @ http://www.cie.uce.ac.uk/evalued/eval.htm
Further information about eVALUEd can be found on the project website @ http://www.cie.uce.ac.uk/evalued and we would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to join our mailing list @ http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/digi-eval.html
Thank you for your attention,
