Abstract:

Funding is tight. Organizations are downsizing. Libraries and information centers are downsizing or being eliminated. Part of an aggressive defense is to know if the services being offered are meeting user and/or management goals. Several strategies are identified from the literature, followed by examples of how to use these tools to present the library/information services in light of today's needs.
