Metrics and Assessment Task Force

Charge: The RBMS Task Force on Metrics and Assessment is charged with examining current practices for gathering and reporting information to demonstrate the value and impact of special collections and archives. The Task Force will conduct a survey of the literature and establish relationships with groups working on similar issues such as ARL, SAA, etc.; consider both what activities warrant assessment and how to undertake the assessment of those activities; and identify needs for best practices and guidelines that will enable more meaningful assessment of the spectrum of what we provide to our various constituencies. The Task Force will provide a preliminary report by Midwinter 2013 and a final written report prior to Annual 2013.
