    • Aim
    • Toidentify the key characteristics of library provision to support research in successful UK universities and departments.
    • Objectives
    • To investigate, across a range of universities and departments with differing and demonstrable records of success in research, the nature and extent of the provision of library services for researchers, including such characteristics as
      • The volume and range of content provided
      • The nature, range and extent of the services provided by subject specialists and others
    • To investigate changes over the past decade in key indicators of research performance and in key characteristics of library provision
    • To assess any correlations between key features of library provision and of research performance.
  • 8. Some issues
    • value means different things to different people
    • describing perceived value and demonstrating value are different activities
    • available data
    • correlation is not causation……..
  • 9. Thank you Michael Jubb www.rin.ac.uk
