Bob Dugan is Dean of Libraries at the University of West Florida (UWF) in Pensacola, and has a 40 year career in public, state and academic libraries. He has co-authored a couple of books on evaluation and assessment, and the management and application of data for decision making and continuous improvement. Institutional research (IR) and effectiveness (IE) activities and personnel are currently aligned with the administration of libraries at UWF. Dugan is chair of the ACRL Academic Library Trends and Statistics Survey Editorial Board which works closely with ACRLMetrics. 

Full Description

While trend analysis is used by most libraries to compare inputs and outputs internally, accrediting organizations may ask institutions for peer benchmarking information as part of a program's or institutional self-study. Additionally, libraries may want to identify other libraries that are successfully conducting a service they want to offer or improve, oftentimes referred to as a best practices study. An example would be providing longer public service hours with existing staff. Dugan will demonstrate the use of ACRLMetrics for benchmarking and best practices studies.
