29 SPEC Kit 352: Collection Assessment
Depends on the amount of collection assessment project work to be done.
Hard to estimate, since activity might be extracting cataloging information (annual statistics) to daily
extraction of circulation statistics for analysis of use.
Hard to evaluate
Hours spent for regular reporting: about 35 hours per year. Hours spent for project-based data
collection and analysis: over 1000 hours per year.
Not tracked
The committee relies on data gathered elsewhere in the library.
We are beginning a new process. At this point we are unable to give definite numbers.
