How academic libraries provide value through course readings Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2017, Published with license by Taylor & Francis. Academic libraries are continually being asked to demonstrate their value. Showing benefits that provide financial value to the user community is one approach to meeting this challenge. With a focus on journal articles and monographs, the authors have analyzed course syllabi to determine the cost savings graduate students in psychology receive based on library-provided access to course readings. As a side benefit, the findings provide support and help inform collection development decisions.
