dc.description.abstract Assessment is commonplace in academia and libraries are not immune to the scrutiny placed on other academic units. Shrinking budgets, mixed with inflationary database and journal costs, force libraries to justify every expense. While librarians may think that LibGuides are wonderful, how does a library evaluate and assess, and ultimately justify, the product’s worth? The chapter explores ways to value LibGuides through review of statistics and other factors using a rubric. en_US
