Publications

IMA team, David Streatfield and guest publications

The three main IMA publication areas are

  • evaluating the impact of libraries and information services (see our book Evaluating the impact of your library by Sharon Markless and David Streatfield1)
  • information literacy development
  • and guest publications.

In this Publications section we have information about our impact evaluation papers and two book chapters on information literacy. The papers and the two chapters are available for download as Adobe pdf files (see Adobe’s web site for information on the free Adobe Reader software).

Two of our titles are now also available for download in pdf versions:

We also have a selected list of David Streatfield’s publications.

Our first guest publication is reproduced here and can also be downloaded as a pdf.

This paper, Democracy and Evaluation, was presented to the 6th European Evaluation Society Biennial Conference 2004, but has since been relegated from their website. We think that the views of Ernie House expressed here should reach a wider audience.

Ernest R. House is Emeritus Professor in the School of Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He can be contacted at Ernie.House@Colorado.edu
