ABSTRACT

This research reports the results from the pilot evaluation of academic libraries in Korea conducted from September through November 2010 to test the applicability and feasibility of an evaluation model and evaluation indicators developed by this research team. In the first and second stages of this pilot evaluation, quantitative and qualitative indicators were respectively used, and in the third stage a survey for user satisfaction was conducted. Out of 58 applicants which applied for this evaluation, a total of 9 libraries were selected as excellent libraries for each group classified according to the size of a library(large, medium, and small) in 3 areas of specialization and 1 library was awarded the best performed library. Despite such limitations as the use of experimental indicators and a pressing schedule, there were some positive effects including the use of formal statistics, an objective assessment of current status of academic libraries, and the improved interest of university administration in academic libraries.
