CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study by Best Practices, LLC found that, on average, 30% of corporate library costs were paid by other departments. Is your library gaining enough support from other departments? Would performance and cost metrics allow you to make a more solid business case for a budgetary increase? This study, Corporate Library Services Benchmarks, provides library services and users profiles, staff and budget resource benchmarks, and volume metrics and efficiency ratios.

"Today, more than ever, corporate libraries must be able to demonstrate their value to the organization. Not only is it important for them to be able to track their own statistics, but also to track their performance against their peers. Savvy librarians use benchmarking metrics to add weight when they need to make a case for more budget or staff," said Martha Haswell, MSIS, a senior research analyst at Best Practices with more than 15 years' experience as a corporate librarian.
The findings from this study are the result of research conducted with leading Fortune 500 companies, such as 3M; AT&T; Boeing; CIBC; ConocoPhillips; Deere; Duke Energy; DuPont; Eastman Kodak; EDS; First Energy; Ford; General Motors; Halliburton; Intel; IBM; Lockheed Martin; Motorola; QUALCOMM; Siemens; Sun Microsystems; Verizon; Westinghouse; Xerox
