Evaluation and Quality in Library Performance Systems
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.
