Hernon, Peter, Robert E. Dugan, and Danuta A. Nitecki. Engaging in Evaluation and Assessment Research. Libraries Unlimited, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-59884-573-0

When undertaking evaluation and assessment, library managers need relevant data that can be used in planning and decision making. The authors of this book clearly state that this is not "another research methods textbook", but a book that will help managers and decision makers create and use research data more effectively. While covering the structure of the evaluation and assessment research process, the book also emphasizes the use of data in planning and communication with library stakeholders.

The Table of Contents includes:

  *   Planning
  *   Relevant Literature
  *   Components of an Evaluation and Assessment Research Study
  *   Applicable Concepts and Language of Research
  *   Designing Evaluations and Assessments
  *   Getting Engaged in Evidence Gathering and Managerial Use
  *   Quantitative Data Collection for Evaluation Research
  *   Qualitative Study
  *   Statistics
  *   Presenting Findings
  *   Creating a Culture of Evidence Gathering and Managerial Use
  *   Reality Evaluation and Assessment
