The Performance Portal
Welcome to the SCONUL Performance Portal. This site has been developed by the Working Group on Performance Improvement (WGPI) on behalf of SCONUL, to create and encourage a community of practice in library performance, measurement, assessment and evaluation.
The WGPI has a continuing commitment to provide a toolkit of data, measurement techniques and instruments in the field of library performance measurement. This site provides a selection of approaches intended to assist College, National and University libraries in demonstrating their value and worth to senior stakeholders within their institutions.
For each approach to measuring library performance there is:
- a definition and introduction,
- a methodology designed to help you implement the approach at your institution,
- an experience page containing supporting resources, and
- a discussion forum to share ideas and examples of best practice.
Above all, this site is designed to be collaborative, allowing users to share their experiences of performance measurement tools within their institution for the benefit of others.
