Evaluation and Quality in Library Performance Systems

Résultats exploitables

The project concerned the development of an open system to support quality management and performance measurement in libraries of all types, based on a client-server architecture offering compatibility with library systems from various library suppliers. EQLIPSE has major benefits for libraries by introducing them to a toolbox approach to both performance measurement and quality management techniques. It will enable European libraries to take a world lead in the utilization of information technology (IT) in library management support in the areas of decision making and efficiency. The following deliverables can be obtained; library requirements analysis; functional specification; data tools and data collections; demonstration trials report; implementation manual; final report.
