MINSTREL: management information software tool for research in libraries

Software is being developed which makes management information more accessible and easy-to-use to support decision making in libraries. The prototype software provides an independent environment within which data can be manipulated according to the defined requirements of the library and the individual librarian, including the generation of statistical ratios and performance measures, data integration and export to other decision tools. The results include specifications and methodologies for importing and exporting data; prototype transformer and user documentation. The MINSTREL software tool will directly contribute to the efficiency of European academic and public libraries by improving decision making at all levels.
