Description: Highlights two projects to help academic libraries apply return on investment (ROI) principles to demonstrate their value and impact on users and justify the expense during challenging economic times. Cawthorn and Herold will explain the application of Triple (people, planet, and profit) Bottom Line Accounting (TBLA) to ROI while King will discuss the IMLS-grant-funded Lib-Value (Value, Outcomes, and Return on Investment of Academic Libraries) that will develop approaches to assessing the value/ROI of library services.
