Title: Academic library effectiveness: An organizational perspective
Abstract: Librarians have not agreed on a clear meaning for library effectiveness. Likewise, in the organizational sciences, there is no agreement on the meaning of organizational effectiveness. This research attempts to establish criteria for assessing academic library organizational effectiveness and to develop an instrument (questionnaire) to measure the construct. Effectiveness is defined as "successful organizational transactions" as perceived by a group of specified library decision makers. It is studied from an organizational perspective, rather than at program, personal, or supraorganizational levels. The unit of analysis is the academic library in colleges or universities not offering doctoral degrees. The sample includes 131 libraries in institutions from six middle Atlantic states and the District of Columbia.
