Demonstrating Library Value

Libraries and research departments offer unique and valuable services across many industries, but it can be a challenge to demonstrate this value internally. Having the ability to promote your library or research department and easily push relevant information out to users can assist with raising your internal profile. In addition, easy and accurate reporting can assist libraries and research departments to showcase their capability and value to management or budget decision makers.

A number of Liberty and illumin's features are aimed at helping libraries and research departments to promote their collection and services to library users. With Liberty, interest lists can be used to email alerts to library users when new resources matching their interests are catalogued and the flexible homepage can also be used to promote a range of resources.

Softlink’s Liberty and illumin offer comprehensive reporting on all aspects of library, research and resource department management. Special libraries and research departments can use these reports to promote their activities and subsequent return on investment to senior management.
