Evaluation Summon

Learning Objectives

Following this session, users will be able to develop a plan to evaluate their discovery service.



Are you getting results from your substantial investment in a discovery service? Librarians from two universities will outline assessment projects to answer this question. Ryerson University asked students about their use of Summon in their research. North Carolina A&T State University tracked several metrics to gauge effectiveness and usage.
