Pomen knjižnic pri evalvacijah in akreditacijah univerz v ZDA

Accreditation is an integral part of the autonomy of U.S. universities, which has changed, but also gained significance through time. Whereas the evaluation of libraries used to be based upon their size, they are now evaluated based upon measures of their performance as defined by ACRL, i.e. input, output and outcome measures. A crucial part is played by library standards, whose development is closely interlinked with the process of accreditation. IFLA is constantly improving library performance measures while putting user satisfaction first. Increasingly prominent digital formats and new ways of communication call for a new approach towards the evaluation and accreditation of libraries.
